    Repubs are already squirming over the amount of executive orders Obama has signed and I can't even imagine the backlash of signing this one.

    Oh the backlash on this one would be HUGE. I mean like 'Clinton Impeachment' huge. It would be a way for them to shore up support for mid terms however considering how the tides are turning nationally I don't think that would neccesarily happen. But it could be a very considerable possibility.

    Dwight D. Eisenhower 484
    John F. Kennedy 214

    interesting, GW Bush used the same executive order to protect faith base (religion,EO 13279 ) employment in an amendment in 2002, any republican or tea party authoritarians that bitch about Obama signing our executive order should have this Bush amendment thrown in their face and then their hands hog tied so that they cant remove the pen!
