    Re: Senate GOP ponders ceding power to President Obama

    Congress has let the executive branch accumulate far too much power. They have ignored their duty to formally declare war, let executive orders that usurp legislative authority go unchallenged and now are handing over the purse strings. The issues with the budget and Obama are merely short terms issues, the long term consequences of this trend are far more dire.

    Let Obama cut whatever he wants. Let him deal with the fallout from the cuts.

    If a President wants to cut spending anywhere, I am all for it. He shouldn't get the power to increase spending on anything, but he should be able to gut whatever program he likes.

    The current occupier of the White House has zero inclination to govern, he simply wants to campaign.
