Executive orders were originally issued by George Washington to explain to his cabinet how they were to carry out the laws passed by Congress under his authority in Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution which states, “…he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed,…” Notice it says take CARE that laws be FAITHFULLY executed. Not make new law. It was Woodrow Wilson who started using executive orders to order unconstitutional bureaucracies that he established with his buddies from the Federal Reserve to make law and attack the rights of the American people. Gee. I’m smarter than Holder.
Attorney General Eric Holder couldn’t explain the constitutional basis for executive orders such as President Obama’s delay of the employer mandate because he hasn’t read the legal analysis — or at least, hasn’t seen it in a long time.
“I’ll be honest with you, I have not seen — I don’t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, so I’m not sure where along the spectrum that would come,” Holder replied when Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, asked him to explain the nature of Obama’s constitutional power to delay the mandate.
Lee had based his question on a standard legal test, first described by Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson, who said the president’s authority to issue executive orders is strongest when he does so with the backing of Congress (category one), more dubious when he issues an order pertaining to a topic on which Congress has not passed a law (category two), and weakest when the executive order is “incompatible with a congressional command” (category three), to use Lee’s paraphrase.
Holder assured Lee that Obama’s team accounts for Jackson’s three-part analysis, but said he couldn’t use that test to explain in any detail what kind of authority the president wielded when he delayed the employer mandate.
