Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on Thursday that if he became president he would repeal all previous executive orders.
“I think the first executive order that I would issue would be to repeal all previous executive orders,” he said, according to Breitbart News.
Paul is a likely 2016 presidential candidate, and he made the remark at an event in New Hampshire, home of the first primary, to a group of young libertarians called Generation Opportunity.
“We’ve done way too many things [the wrong way]: Signing statements, altering legislation by the president, are wrong and unconstitutional and shouldn’t happen. Executive orders shouldn’t either,” Paul said.
