Money is the mother's milk of politics. If you doubt that, just notice the number of contribution requests that fill the TV screens and clutter your mailbox, and the fact that more than half the members of Congress are millionaires! Even the most rudimentary political campaigns cost many thousands of dollars to launch, and even more to keep the elected bureaucrats in office. Of course, nobody ever makes a significant contribution to a political candidate without expecting something in return. I believe it's called "cronyism."
Now add cronyism to Executive Order and you have Tyranny. However, public laws are messy. They take time, and aren't always predictable. What to do? Just issue an Executive Order, of course. President Obama has publicly stated that he would act on his various schemes "with or without Congress."
It's good to talk.
