congress also has the ability to make amendments and they just lost that power.The President has the power to make treaties, Congress has the power to vote on whether or not the treaties that the President has made will actually become binding on the United States. Article 2 Section 2 of the US Constitution.
no their job is to pass and vote for things in the interest of the people of the US not just give up and down votes.That is, in fact, part of doing that job - and it is why they have to do up or down votes on all kinds of Presidential proposals. Judicial appointments, for example. Cabinet-level department heads, for another. Treaties and agreements with foreign countries, for another. Congress has no business trying to figure out who to appoint to be Secretary of State under the President, and they have no business trying to upstage the executive functions in negotiating with foreign countries. The Congress is not our Executive, and we shouldn't allow them to try to be, or expect them to be - our Constitution is designed to limit all three branches of government, not just the Executive.
This is throwing the baby out with the bathwater.If they see something that awful, they can vote it down.
I might agree with 95% of the bill but not 5% of it. congress should be able to change that 5% not throw the whole thing out.
