    Porto Ricans do not need electricity. It is like 80 degrees there year round. And they can cook stuff on the BBQ like their cannibal ancestors.

    3 months without power and you'd WISH you could use YOUR foodstamps for a hot meal at KFC..

    You're a real jerk. It adds NO money to the effort. AND it makes sense. That last part explains why you're against it. :rolleyes:

    There's no need to change the law. The law is fine. This is an audible at scrimmage line. It'll be GONE in a few months. You don't NEED this in Houston/Florida because the power wasn't gonna be out for that long. If it was LAW -- it would be abused every time a power pole fell over. Or it RAINED in California..

    Congress can pass legislation to override an Executive Order.

    Courts can strike down Executive Orders (as we have seen many times this year).

    There are checks and balances. The President writing an EO is the quickest way a law can be written, and if Congress or the Courts don't object, then everyone is pretty much on the same page, and the same law would likely be passed by Congress after several months.

    Ok - but that's not the issue. Trump should have gone to congress and gotten the law changed. THINK

    Everyone agrees the EO is quick but writing a law that way is still unconstitutional.

    "All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a congress of the united states."

    Trump should have gone to congress. The law could be changed overnight by congress.

    Conservatives praising Trump for effectively expanding a program that wouldn't even exist if conservatives had their way.

    Anyone can write a law, but only Congress can pass it to become a law..
