First, he has created a fiscal commission because Congress did not do it quick enough.
“I’ve also called for a bipartisan fiscal commission. Unfortunately this measure, which originally had received the support of a bipartisan majority of the Senate and was cosponsored by Senators Conrad and Gregg, Democrats and Republicans, was blocked there. So I’m going to be creating this commission by executive order.” [Source]
Second, he is going to use what is called a recess appointment because Congress will not approve his nominations.
“If the Senate does not act — and I made this very clear — if the Senate does not act to confirm these nominees, I will consider making several recess appointments during the upcoming recess, because we can’t afford to allow politics to stand in the way of a well-functioning government.” [Source]
As always, our President does not care what the people say or think, and does not care what Congress thinks, or what the Supreme Court thinks. He feels that what he wants done is best for everyone and he will bypass as many checks and balances as possible.
