When asked about the possibility of President Barack Obama taking executive action on campaign finance reform, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday he thinks such actions are “clearly prohibited by law.” “It just makes you shake your head,” McConnell said. “He reminds me of Woodrow Wilson. [Wilson] was a president who believed Congress was too powerful and that the founders of our country got it wrong … by that standard, Barack Obama really is Wilsonian. As if there are just no boundaries beyond which he can’t push.”
