The President Won’t Be Needing You

The Constittion Is BurningPresident Obama says this is a “year of action”—and last night he made it very clear whose action he was talking about.

After noting recently that he has a pen and a phone and can use those to make changes without the help of Congress, Obama charged forward with promises of taking executive action wherever lawmakers fail to meet his demands.

“This President has acted like the playground bully who when he can’t have everything he wants, he decides to take his ball and go home,” Heritage President Jim DeMint said yesterday. “This is not the way our government is supposed to work.”


Indeed—Heritage’s legal experts have long questioned the legality of the President’s lone ranger style. And early analysis of this year’s State of the Union proposals indicates the executive branch will continue to run amok.

One of the most hyped features of the speech was Obama’s declaration that he will order a higher minimum wage for people working on federal contracts. These aren’t federal employees, but employees of companies that have contracts to do work for the federal government.

Heritage legal fellow Andrew Kloster said this isn’t something the President is supposed to be doing.

“Any contractor who is adversely affected by this action would have a good case to take to court,” Kloster said. “If it stands, though, this would be yet another unlawful unilateral action concocted by the Obama Administration.”
