    McCain had an amendment passed banning torture of suspected terrorist subjects. Bush used his signing statement to completely ignore that

    Federalism decreased:
    Obamacare
    Supreme court decision Obergefell vs Hodges
    Obama's $787b stimulus package
    Arizona vs USA, ruled Arizona's immigration policy was illegal

    Federalism increased:
    States can freely vote on whether they want to legalise Marijuana (colorado did)
    Shelby county vs Holder, states can make their own voting procedures from now on instead of having to follow section 4b of the voting rights act

    Obama's signing statement on the National Security Authorization Act in which there was $662 bn funding for defense. Obama signed against 20 parts of the legislation - for example the part of the legislation where the military can detain suspected terrorists for an undetermined amount of time.

    Significance: President can interpret the legislation
    - He can interpret the legislation so that it doesn't erode his power (if the legislation undermines his power)

    The gun one isn't even in affect (correct me if i'm wrong), better to use the DACA one. https://www.uscis.gov/immigrationaction

    i thought the gun restriction executive order thing was just a threat and not actually taken place yet?

    maybe you could say that a potential use of presidential power recently was obama's threat to create an executive order regarding the restriction of gun laws? or best to stick with one that's been done? I say this because I think examiners appreciate it when one uses recent examples, indicating they keep up with modern politics in the US...
