'''Executive Order''' is action, which does not require the approval of the [[Congress]], by the [[President]].  The executive's ability to act by executive order is circumscribed by constitutional limits.  Where the executive acts with the support of Congress, this authority is unlimited; where the President acts against the wishes of Congress, significantly less power inheres.

An executive order is an action which does not require the approval of the Congress, by the President. It cannot contradict or override any law, but can direct agencies in the executive branch in accordance with law. For example, only the President can issue an Executive Order for a budget sequester, by law. Conservatives are often critical of executive orders for how they bypass the United States Constitutional process for enacting new laws.

The proposed executive order on abortion to which Bart Stupak agreed on March 21, 2010, and which is riddled with loopholes, is available here. A criticism is available here.

Barack Obama issued 276 executive orders in total.[1] During his two term Presidency, Ronald Reagan issued 381 executive orders.[2] One must look at the content of executive orders rather than the number issued to determine whether overreach had been committed by a president.
