The New York Times has ripped President Biden for using so many executive orders in his first several days in office to sidestep Congress and erase measures put in place by former President Trump.
In a piece Wednesday headlined “Ease Up on the Executive Actions, Joe,” the paper’s editorial board said the raft of executive orders “is no way to make law.”
“A polarized, narrowly divided Congress may offer Mr. Biden little choice but to employ executive actions or see his entire agenda held hostage. These directives, however, are a flawed substitute for legislation,” the board wrote, with the Senate split 50-50 and Democrats having only a narrow House majority.
The board of the liberal-leaning, national newspaper also argued the directives are “intended to provide guidance to the government and need to work within the discretion granted the executive by existing law or the Constitution. They do not create new law — though executive orders carry the force of law — and they are not meant to serve as an end run around the will of Congress. By design, such actions are more limited in what they can achieve than legislation, and presidents who overreach invite intervention by the courts.”
