you look at the number of executive orders and compare obama to president george w. bush, he has had far fewer. >> two things are true. executive orders are usually the area we talk about executive overreach. in obama's case it is not that he is operating through executive orders. he is ignoring statutes in rewriting things his own way. we would not be in this situation today if republicans were as tough on republican presidents as they have been on president obama. we would not be in this circumstance if democrats were as tough on president obama as they were on president bush. defending the constitution is an obligation to the congress as that we have not been fulfilling. that is not a year or two or three, that is a decade or two or three. d'amatos?the alfonse >> when the president says so sue me, what is your reaction? >> i hate that it has become that cavalier. this is serious business. this is not heady partisan politics. this is about the coequal ranch of the government. this is about the balance of powers. we are going to sue the president. not because we are happy about it b

three years of his administration. george bush at 291 in his eight years in thehouse. bill clinton had 364 in four years in the white house. george herbert walker bush had 166. ronald reagan had 381 during his eight years, and jimmy carter had 320 in his four years in office. >> he appears to be -- obama appears to be on track to be issuing the average number of executive orders. but the numbers don't tell everything. if executive orders are issued well within the authority and scope of the executive power, there's nothing wrong with them. if you have far fewer orders issued, but they're beyond the scope of power, then that's a concern. perhaps it would be useful to put this in a larger context. and if i have a minute, i'd be glad to do that. we all learned in high school civics of the three branches of government, the congress writes the laws, and congress's powers are renewsroom rate and limited, there are only certain areas in which they're authorized to legislate. the other powers are not remune rated, so it leaves open the question, waste the scope of the judicial power or executi

governor mike pence was really unable to do on sunday, last week, when he was asked by george stephanopoulos about this. i'm wondering what your sessio assessment is of governmor pences reaction. tony: this is an accommodation. it is not automatic. yes, they are particular cases. if you look at cases like a grandmother in washington state very similar situation she is a floors. she had a long time customer who was gay, would talk to him when he came at the store, that he was getting married and he wanted her to do the foil arrangements. she said i'm sorry, i can do that, if violates my face. the state of washington got involved, suing her. she may lose her business, and not just her business, but her home as well. rfra simply allows for an accommodation of people. it could be a bigger who is owned by someone who is gay and if a church comes then, or someone associated with religion wanted a scripture put onto a cake that said something about homosexuality and the baker didn't want to do it, they should have the right not to do it. government should not be a party forcing peopl

from three great men. george washington, the father of our country, abraham lincoln, who in those terrible times when the country was being torn apart came in and pulled the country back together. and ronald reagan, who came in at a time when this country was looking at 21% interest. we had a president almost as bad as the president we have now in office -- and a nation that was really own. and ronald reagan came in and reminded us what it was all about. and in short order, that president restored our faith in ourselves and in our country and got this country rolling again to the point where the soviets took one look, put their hands up, and closed up shop. ronald reagan made all that ifference. i dwelled a little on president reagan, because having spoken to marco rubio a number of times, i can tell you that first of all, he is a ronald reagan epublican. and secondly, when you really talk to him, you find out he truly was inspired by that great resident, ronald reagan. we are republicans for a number of reasons. we are republicans because we believe in the individual. the privacy

, how do you pay for all of that? this is from veterans of the george w. bush administration. they write that a conservative vision of government -- they make this point. the obama years have been a high watermark, including a post- world war ii record for federal spending as a percentage of gdp at 25.2% in the obama administration. by comparison, the postwar average was 19.8%. the u.s. has amassed more than $6 trillion in debt since january 2009. prior to president obama, no president has had a budget with a trillion dollar deficit. obama has submitted four of them. your response? guest: thank you for the question. first of all, i would say that you should watch some of the videos from former labor secreatry robert reisch. one of the things that he is -- has pointed out is that the deficit and issues of debt are the wrong place to be looking. you can deal with those by growing the economy. since day one of his term, he inherited an economy in crisis. the bottom has fallen out. but we need to see is congress -- what we need to see is congress doing more, not less. to stimulate the
