Obama: Not Legitimate for Future Presidents to Lower Taxes via Executive Action

After unilaterally granting temporary amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants last week, President Barack Obama said it would not be legitimate for a future president to unilaterally lower tax rates. 

When asked on ABC’s This Week if his successor could unilaterally act to lower taxes if Congress does not, Obama replied, “absolutely not.”

Obama, despite the IRS’s targeting of conservative and Tea Party organizations, also said that his administration only audits “folks who are most likely to be cheating” and said that even though the IRS does not “audit every single person… we still expect that people are going to go ahead and follow the law.”
