To the editor: The critics of President Biden are claiming his recent rash of executive orders are unconstitutional and those directives are by-passing the legislature, which should pass laws and regulations. However, consider this: if executive orders are unconstitutional, why aren’t they being legally challenged by those who oppose them?
Do you recall Trump’s first executive order? His initial directive was aimed to reverse the Affordable Care Act — Obamacare. The Republicans vowed to “repeal and replace” that law, which was previously voted on and approved by Congress. It’s been four years and the Trump administration failed to introduce legislation that either improved or replaced Obamacare. Recall the interview with Trump when he said his new health care plan was “right here” in the pile of papers he was holding. Whatever happened to those documents? It must have been a photo opportunity just like the stunt of holding the Bible in front of St. John’s Church.
