If he was to adhere to the Constitution he would do nothing, because legislation is for the legislative branch. Why is it that modern Congresses always have to "do something"? We have about 100,000 pages of Federal Register listed laws now, and certainly 10 times more than that which do not require being listed in the Federal register. Things like Obamacare and the Patriot act are in the range of 20,000 pages each. How many more pages of laws do we need? Or do we need far less? The Constitution itself was hand written on 8 sheets of paper. Probably would have made it onto 4 or 5 typewritten pages.
