Letter: Executive action

Published: Thursday, Feb. 27 2014 12:00 a.m. MST

Concerning President Obama using executive orders to accomplish his goals:

I think it is interesting that he has decided to use it almost as a threat. However, if he wants to get anything strong passed in the gridlocked congress then this may be a solution.

The executive privilege has been utilized in the past to accomplish many presidents’ agendas, especially when congress is in deadlock. So I think it is good that the president wants to get things done.
