[/quote]. The executive branch was never meant to have the ability to control the budget for all of government. . [/quote] So first we hear that POTUS might use an executive order to push through a new mandate on guns basically giving the finger to representative government Now the elected members themselves are begging him to bypass them and again rule by fiat Why bother having elections then? Apparently we just got ourselves a king Y'know, I didnt like Bush much either, but honestly , if Bush had done half this crap, democrats would be howling tyranny and dictatorship but when their guy does it, it's A-OK Both sides suck eggs...time for a new party, obviously these two aren't up for the job of representing us [/quote]
You Democrats are about to cross the line with this shit!
has the right to do this:
Article I, Section 8.
"The Congress shall have power ...
To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;"

Top Democratic senators urged President Barack Obama on Friday to be ready to raise the debt ceiling without congressional approval in order to avert a damaging debt default.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his leadership team said Obama should use "any lawful steps" under his authority to "ensure that America does not break its promises and trigger a global economic crisis."
They urged Obama to act on his own if Republicans insist on a debt limit extension that is coupled with "unbalanced or unreasonable" spending cuts.
Some analysts and Democrats believe the 14th Amendment of the Constitution gives the president the authority to raise the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling unilaterally.
