The Biden team is turning on the New York Times after the paper published an op-ed criticizing Biden for legislating through executive order and urging him to work with congress.

According to The Daily Wire:

The Times editorial board knocked Biden for pushing his agenda through dozens of executive actions in the days following his inauguration rather than wheeling and dealing with lawmakers in Congress. The Times pointed out that everything Biden does solely through executive authority can be undone by the next person to sit in the Oval Office.

The editorial board, in a piece titled “Ease Up on the Executive Actions, Joe,” writes:

But this is no way to make law. A polarized, narrowly divided Congress may offer Mr. Biden little choice but to employ executive actions or see his entire agenda held hostage. These directives, however, are a flawed substitute for legislation. They are intended to provide guidance to the government and need to work within the discretion granted the executive by existing law or the Constitution. They do not create new law — though executive orders carry the force of law — and they are not meant to serve as an end run around the will of Congress. By design, such actions are more limited in what they can achieve than legislation, and presidents who overreach invite intervention by the courts.

“As the NYT ed board criticizes President Biden this am for taking swift executive action to reverse the most egregious actions of the Trump Admin, I can’t help but recall that during the primary they encouraged voters to consider what a president could accomplish through [executive action],” Bedingfield wrote in Twitter. “So my question is which actions that the President took to reverse Donald Trump’s executive orders would they have liked to see him not pursue?”

It appears that the Biden administration is acting like the Obama admin in that it is trying to crush any and all resistance towards it.
