What a waste these folks are.
If they really wanted to solve this they would’ve required a budget first, before voting on the debt ceiling.
This will go nowhere when budget resolutions are provided, but not passed.
Total crock it is!
“If they really wanted to solve this they wouldve required a budget first, before voting on the debt ceiling.”
Exactly! They just handed over any upper hand they may have had.
If yes, then the REPUBLICANS just declared that Obama has the complete power of the purse for 3 entire months. A huge violation of the principles of the Separation of Powers, and probably an unconstitutional delegation of a power to the executive branch.
Are there any restrictions on Executive power here at all? What is going to stop the Obama Administration from borrowing as much money over the next three months so that he never needs to ask Congress for money ever again?
