But Pastor Wright is not wrong for that statement.
Not quite, no. Unless Congress is very very united (hah!), the president has an enormous amount of power over it in the form of a veto.
Let's not forget about pocket vetoes.
Let's also not forget that over the last 20 years, there's been I think 4 overrides. That obviously means congress has been extremely divided, partisan, and politically fearful of current administrations.
In the 20 years prior to THAT, there was somewhere around 30 overrides.
Just food for thought.
In your warped world sure he's not.
If you were black, you may feel the same way. God Bless America? Do you truly think God would bless any nation, let alone one that has wrapped itself in greed and military might?
No yours is astounding. bush did not veto any bills duing the GOP controlled congress because the sheep were rubber stamping everything he wanted. That is when the pork was flowing and the red ink began to seep into the economy. The housing market carried the economy as long as it could. Now that it has failed, we are paying the price.
That was the beginning of the three trillion dollar+ give away.
It would be a real time waster working on bills the Potus isn't going to sign.
Harry Reid should follow the previous leader of the senate and concentrate on working together instead of sucking all the oxygen out of the senate floor.
Congress still has the fnal word. Just cause they can not agree on something does not change the fact THEY have the ability to override the President.
There's ton of blacks that don't feel, 'God damn America' to think otherwise is stereotyping blacks, is that what you want to do?
If you made 20 Million dollars of even 2 mil, yes, you should pay a higher percentage. This has much to do with morality and the fact you hardly didn't anything stupendous enough to earn 2 0r 20 mil.
"On moral grounds, then, we could argue for a flat income tax of 90 percent to return that wealth to its real owners. In the United States, even a flat tax of 70 percent would support all governmental programs (about half the total tax) and allow payment, with the remainder, of a patrimony of about $8,000 per annum per inhabitant, or $25,000 for a family of three. This would generously leave with the original recipients of the income about three times what, according to my rough guess, they had earned."
