    If the money is accessed via an appropriation bill, then Congress has a major role in that, no?

    How well it's spent isn't the issue, from what I understand.

    Just as much...or more? The President can ask...it's Congress that says yes or no.

    The President can't veto an appropriations bill that doesn't make it to his desk. The President can't take us to war....he has limited ability to deploy troops without congressional approval. He's only got 90 days or so before congress says yes or no.

    And that is why all of the money is gone. It was squandered to buy things to keep politicians in power. We ought to go find every one of them, take all of their wealth, then run them out of the country.
