Ryan Accuses Obama of 'Lawless Presidency'

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) told ABC News that President Obama's tenure is becoming "increasingly lawless" with his embrace of executive orders, which are "creating a dangerous trend which is contrary to the Constitution."

Said Ryan: "It's not the number of executive orders, it's the scope of the executive orders. It's the fact that he's actually contradicting law, like in the health care case [when Obama delayed provisions of the Affordable Care Act], or proposing new laws without going through Congress, George, that's the issue."

He added: "We have an increasingly lawless presidency where he is actually doing the job of Congress, writing new policies and new laws without going through Congress. Presidents don't write laws, Congress does."
