Bush challenged hundreds of laws

President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution. He did this through the misuse of Executive Signing Statements.

Changed social security laws
In 2008 the Social Security laws were changed. Social Security tax is no longer taken from your paycheck once you hit $102,000, you no longer pay into the system. That in itself does two things; 1) puts the burden of social security on the poor and middle class, and 2) will now vastly restrict the incoming flow of money to the program, essentially killing it dead very quickly.

Now he’s working to change labor wage & hour laws through the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). He wants to allow businesses to deny comp time (if made up during a reasonable time), take workers tips (if paid minimum wage) and to redo regulations of overtime pay.
