How to use overreach in a sentence?

  1. Mick Mulvaney:

    To the extent that there is a Republican president who tries to overreach his executive privilege, we will push back against it.

  2. Conor Bernstein:

    Until the pandemic hit this year, this administration stopped those declines and had even begun to reverse them. Stopping such a steep and rapid decline is significant in itself and shouldnt be overlooked, this administration has worked to address eight years of regulatory overreach to level the playing field not just for coal but a variety of industries. The result has been a return of competition in the energy industry although we still have a long way to go thanks to outsized subsidies for renewables.

  3. President Barack Obama:

  4. John Catanzara:

    If we suspect the numbers are true and we get a large number of our members who stand firm on their beliefs that this is an overreach, and they're not going to supply the information in the portal or submit to testing, then it's safe to say the city of Chicago will have a police force at 50 % or less for this weekend coming up, that is not because of the FOP, that is 100 % because of the mayor's unwillingness to budge from her hard line. So whatever happens because of the manpower issue, that falls at the mayor's doorstep.

  5. Thom Tillis:

    Virtually every one that I've seen here has been one that sweep up law-abiding gun owners into what I consider to be an overreach.
