Pres. Obama Not Afraid to Use ‘Pen’ and ‘Phone’ to Advance Agenda

Tired of a lack of Congressional progress, President Barack Obama this morning said he has no problem using executive actions to get what needs to get passed into action.

NBC News reports President Obama planned to discuss “how to use all the tools” with top administration officials about getting key legislation passed.

This is what NBC reported:

“One of the things that I will be emphasizing in this meeting is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we are providing Americans the kind of help that they need,” he said. “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone.”

 

The pen, he said, can be used to sign executive orders, while the phone means calls to non-profit, universities, and private sector organizations that will rally towards a “unifying theme” of economic mobility and fairness.

The president said all of these points will be discussed in this year’s State of the Union address.
