With West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin obstructing a big tax and spending bill in Congress and Republicans likely to flip at least one chamber in November, Democrats are urging President Biden to impose his agenda by executive order . “Now is the time for Executive Beast Mode,” Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse tweeted on July 14.
Mr. Biden needed no encouragement. His administration has tried to circumvent Congress at almost every turn, from student loan forgiveness to a backdoor electric vehicle mandate. But his regulatory freaks will likely be met with legal buzz.
