Over the weekend, USA TODAY took a look at how President Obama uses executive power over federal contracts to carry out his agenda.

"It's completely in line with his sort of pen-and-phone philosophy. Obama is trying to impose his will through his bureaucracy," said Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, the chairman of the House Small Business Committee. "The shame of it is that the people who are going to suffer are small businesses and families all across this country. The large corporations will find a way to deal with these new rules and regulations. ... Hiring a few more lawyers or accountants to deal with these things is not a huge deal for them."

See the rest of the article and what Chairman Chabot had to say here, and see what the Small Business Committee's Contracting and Workforce and Investigations, Oversight, and Regulations subcommittees recently found about just some of these regulations on contracting practices here
