    Default Does the EPA need more power?

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013...er-1102654959/

    Just read recently that Obama has issued hundreds (over 600?) executive orders in his 5+ years v. less than 100 for Bush (only mentioning Bush for comparison since he is the most recent POTUS ... though Obama is fond of comparing things to Bush's administration). If someone can validate the #s, feel free.

    EPA is already known for pushing the envelope on expanding its tentacles of power. This seems a blank check for just about anything they want to do.

    8 years for Bush vs. 5 years for BHO.

    We should wait until Obama's 2nd term is over to compare the numbers. The real issue lies when one starts digging into the substance of the EO's. Much more radical orders by BHO than by Bush IMO.

    I gave you the links. You can get a PDF of each and every executive order. Dig away. I'm sure you prove your "hypothesis" in short order.

    No thanks Buzz, I've already looked through many of them. In my previous post I was just adding some perspective to your post. Also, I did not state a hypothesis, it was an opinion and I said as much.
