From CNN's Carol Costello:
Since Congress isn't eager to discuss any part of the president's jobs bill, Obama is moving forward on his own and implementing a series of executive actions this week, such as new rules aimed at making it easier for homeowners to refinance.
Arguing that the president is simply using the excuse of political gamesmanship to get around Congress, Republicans say that the home mortgage plan won't solve anything and some economists contend that it won't be enough to solve the housing crisis.
What is clear is that the economy won't be greatly helped unless Congress takes action. Instead of waiting for lawmakers, Obama is going rouge to show Americans that he's doing something and to shame Congress into acting.
