Obama on Executive Orders: 'I'm Not Going To Apologize'

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” President Barack Obama discussed House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) lawsuit against the president for his excessive use of executive orders. He told host George Stephanopoulos he wasn’t planing on apologizing. 

“He (Boehner) didn’t specifically say what he was objecting to,” he said. “I’m not going to apologize for trying to do something while they’re doing nothing” the president added  “you know, the suit is a stunt. But what i told speaker Boehner directly is, ‘if you’re really concerned about me taking too many executive actions, why don’t you try getting something done through congress?’ The majority of the american people want to see immigration reform done. We had a bipartisan bill in the Senate. It’s sitting in the House. Why haven’t we gotten it done? You’re going to squawk if I try to fix some parts of it administratively that are within my authority while you’re not doing anything.”
