Obama, The State of the Union and Executive Orders

Students often struggle for examples for executive orders (although why, I do not know given thatthey are all on the White House website – check it out!). However with Obama launching into a perceived attack on Congress through his State of the Union, promising executive orders where they will not legislate, this article takes a helpful look at executive orders and their impact. Worth noting that Obama has stuck to his word and passed an executive order on the federal minimum wage, therefore a great example. However, this only applies to federal workers, therefore actually effects only few people – even better example!
