WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan says Barack Obama is running a, "increasingly lawless presidency."

On ABC's "This Week" Sunday, the Janesville Republican accused the Democrat Obama of being unconstitutional with his use of executive orders.

Host George Stephanopoulos, a former Clinton White House official, noted that Obama's orders were far less than recent presidents of both parties.

Ryan said he's not upset about the number of orders, but rather their scope. He mentioned Obama's delay of some major requirements of the Affordable Care Act.

Ryan said it's up to Congress, not the White House, to change those things.

Stephanopoulos asked Ryan if he wants Obama impeached. Ryan said no -- and the courts will settle some major points of disagreement.

Ryan said he was most upset about Obama's declaration in his State of the Union that, "If Congress doesn't give me what I want, I'm going to do it myself." In Ryan's words, "That is not the way our constitution works."
