- Reaction score
- Political Leaning
In the last, oh dozen or so, sessions of congress, congress hasn't been doing their job, and the executive branch has stepped in to fill the gap, and then to accomplish their policy aims through executive fiat, i.e. executive orders.I am all for cutting the power of the Presidency by a LOT. The War Powers Act needs more teeth and the scope of Executive Orders needs to be reigned in.
If you want to take this power of the Presidency by a LOT, you are also going to have to have congress get off their fat asses, off their political games, and do their jobs.
None of this I'm against, and am rather for.
