Today on Your Call: How is the president using his executive power?

Feb 17, 2014

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have conversation with Bruce Ackerman, a prominent constitutional scholar and the author of  “We the People: the Civil Rights Revolution.” He says President Obama has forgotten the Constitution in formulating his policy on the NSA and that this is a good time to consider serious reform. So how does president Obama differ from his processors? And based on the US constitution, what powers does the president hold? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar.
