Republican Critics Ready for Flurry of Biden Orders

    Naomi Lim of the Washington Examiner highlights GOP preparations for one aspect of a new Joe Biden presidential administration.

  • President-elect Joe Biden is readying a stack of executive orders to sign after he's sworn into office, and it has some Republicans experiencing déjà vu.
  • Like former President Barack Obama before him, Biden is poised to rely on unilateral action as he faces the prospect of a recalcitrant Senate. On top of a possible Republican-controlled Senate, Biden has to grapple with tensions within his own party as well. Far-left lawmakers, for instance, are set to push him on policy, despite a slimmer Democratic majority in the House.
  • Incoming White House chief of staff Ron Klain has already listed some of Biden's priorities. They include reintroducing protections for "Dreamers" brought to the country illegally as children and a slew of environmental regulations.
  • Biden would also ensure the United States rejoined the Paris agreement and the World Health Organization, Klain told MSNBC. He would roll back the travel restrictions President Trump placed on a handful of majority-Muslim countries. And fix "some of the flaws in the Affordable Care Act that the Trump administration has imposed," Klain said.
  • Biden's COVID-19 response plan and broader immigration reforms were on top of his to-do list too, according to Klain.
  • "He's getting ready for that now during the transition. We're going to deliver on that starting on Jan. 20," he said.
  • Biden's embrace of direct authority is a pivot from the Democratic primary. During the primary, the two-term vice president and 36-year Delaware senator, who prides himself on being a dealmaker, boohooed the measures, sometimes perceived as heavy-handed because they don't require consensus. They can also be easily reversed by the succeeding Oval Office occupant.
  • He reiterated the sentiment last week when asked by reporters about COVID-19 economic relief negotiations in Wilmington, Delaware.
