Supreme Court Stands Up To Obama Administration, Rules His Recess Appointments Unconstitutional
While it's true that Obama has not laid down as many EO's as say FDR, only very rarely are they overturned.
"The unanimous decision preserves the right of presidents to make recess appointments, but the court said Thursday that Obama exceeded his authority when he made the appointments. At question was whether Congress was in technically in session or not. Congress said it was; Obama said it wasn’t. SCOTUS agreed with Congress."
The justices said in their first-ever consideration of the Constitution’s recess appointments clause that Congress gets to decide when it is in recess and that there was no recess when Obama acted. The president said he made the appointments in the face of Republican refusal to allow the NLRB to function.
