(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) says that the newly launched Congressional Full Employment Caucus will “give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign.”

Jackson Lee made the statement while gathered with Democrats on January 29th to announce the establishment of the Full Employment Caucus.

“We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work and we’re not doing right by them by creating work,” Jackson Lee said. “I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength.”

“In fact, I think that should be our number one agenda. Let’s write up these executive orders, draft them of course - and ask the president to stand with us on full employment.”

The Congressional Full Employment Caucus was launched last week by Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.).  Conyers website says: “The Congressional Full Employment Caucus will serve as a platform and working group for Members dedicated to identifying solutions to our current unemployment crisis and advocating for legislative action.”

Executive orders issued by a president have the full force of law and do not have to receive approval by the legislative branch of government. During his State of The Union address last week, President Obama made clear he was willing to use executive actions to sidestep Congress.

Shelia Jackson Lee talks a big talk but doesn't necessarily walk the walk.
Maybe this particular "Caucus" can pitch in and buy Obama a crown to wear while he signs the orders.
Truthfully, the most important thing in life is knowing what the most important things in life are, and prioritizing them accordingly.   Melchor Lim

Isn't this the same stupid idiot who thought the 2012 elections should be postponed because what obama was doing was too important.
