Thank you for contacting me regarding President Barack Obama's March 2012 Executive Order on National Defense Resources Preparedness. I welcome your thoughts and comments.
Presidents have issued executive orders affecting both foreign and domestic policy since the middle of the 19th century. Executive orders based on valid constitutional or statutory authority are legally binding. However, it is possible for an executive order to be nullified if Congress changes the statute upon which the executive order is based.
This new executive order delegates authorities and addresses national defense resource policies and programs under the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended. While I believe the members of our Armed Services should have the best available equipment and resources, the executive order usurps Congressional authority and damages the necessary constitutional balance of power among the branches of the federal government.
Please be assured that I will continue to support legislation that ensures the best resources for the preparedness of our troops, and I will strive for constitutional balance of power in the federal government. I appreciate hearing from you, and I hope that you will not hesitate to contact me on any issue that is important to you.

***************** - Obama, you insignificant lil' flea, you cannot defeat me! I am backed by a fella, who had spikes driven in both hands and feet, then he was hung on timbers and the only thing holding him up were those spikes, then he was stabbed and given up for dead, then he was entombed, then he walked out of that tomb and ascended up into the sky and after all of that he still lives today! Yes, this is my backing! What's yours? George Soros? I am laughing whole-heartedly right now! How small you really are Obama! Oh yeah, if you think this fella backing me is something, I just can't wait 'til you meet his father! Good luck, Hehehehehe!
