There’s a downside to ruling by fiat. A new guy might come in and undo your fiats.
From the Washington Examiner:
President-elect Trump will use executive orders to unravel parts of Obamacare as Congress works to repeal the law, according to Republicans who met Wednesday morning with Vice President-elect Mike Pence.
Pence and Trump aides, including Kellyanne Conway and Reince Prebius, met Wednesday morning with the House Republican Conference about repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act . . . “Since this president, Obama, used the pen and the phone to enact legislation to go around the checks and balances of the Constitution, they’re going to restore the checks and balances of the Constitution by removing those executive actions,” Brady told reporters.
