    This is actually pretty scary. Jesse Jackson Jr. thinks he should declare a National Emergency so he can bypass Congress and the Constitution.

    I do hope the people that voted Congress in will see what they have done and vote them out. It is an absolute disgrace the way they have conducted themselves. Holding the country hostage, so that Obama have the chance to help those in great need.

    Congress is doing the job they were elected to do. Don't forget Congress includes the Senate that has just voted against this horrible bill. The Senate has a Democrat majority. His own party sees this thing is awful.

    The more power we give one branch of government, the more our Constitution is being trampled. Our form of Government was designed the way it is to prevent one branch from controlling everything. It's called Separation of Power.

    Do you know how many branches there are??

    The President (and a lot of Congress for that matter) just don't get it. They're still trying to spend their way out of debt and out of a recession. If they were really serious about this, they would write a jobs bill that takes a blow torch the federal budget. They need to stop thinking in terms of cutting the budgets of various departments and start cutting out entire departments.

    He hasn't. You have. All he's saying here is that his cabinet and staff should find everything they can do that they already have Congressional authorization to do, and do it. There is nothing wrong with that.
