Question of the Day
Should presidents use executive action as an end-run around Congress to forge policy?
Comment: There is a reason we have three branches of government and not one as this current president would prefer. This is a republic, not a monarchy. Unfortunately our Congress has become fat and lazy and ineffectual as they're too busy concentrating on Party power and not working together for the good of the people and this great country. from sunny, downtown Fairborn by the ol' Man
Comment: One of the primary reasons we HAVE a congress is to prevent a monarchy. That is what a president attempts when using executive orders. from Greenville, Oh by Greg
Comment: We live in a nation based on democracy. We have a system of checks and balance for a reason. No branch of government outweighs the other. It was constructed this way by our founding fathers so our nation would not devolve into a dictatorship/fascist regime/Autocracy, etc. Those who disagree may want to take a moment to read the U.S. Constitution from Waynesville by Kim
Comment: We have laws and the Constitution. They should be followed.
Comment: THAT'S LIKE SAYING, WE WON'T RAISE TAXES BUT... WE HAVE TO RAISE THEM TO PROTECT THE COUNTRY. LOL from FRANKLIN by KAREN
Comment: Checks and Balances, If he is willing to bypass congress then what else is he willing to do to bypass the constitution? from Miamisburg, Ohio by Mike
Comment: The president is not to change/defy/alter any law passed by the Congress. We have separation of powers for a reason. He does not understand that. And he is supposed to be a Constitutional Scholar? from So. Charleston, Ohio by Dian
Comment: In most of those cases it would be unconstitutional and an impeachable offense. All president;s use the power of the pen but it's how they use it and what for that makes the distinction. from West Carrollton, oh by Lisa
Comment: He should never have the right to do any thing he wants. Emergency is all that he should do. from Bradford, Ohio by Ellen
Comment: ITS CALLED CHECKS AND BALANCES from miamisburg by m
Comment: that's why we had laws from cincinnati/ohio by pat
Comment: That's called socialism. Just like judges legislating from the bench. from Miamisburg, OH by Chris
Comment: He is NOT A KING NOR AN EMPEROR!!!!!! from dayton, ohio by shelley
Comment: "We the people...," not I the President..... from Dayton, Ohio by Lisa
Comment: Never! Where would this end? Would a president use this tactic to get everything he personally wants, regardless of Congress' or the public's wishes? This sets a dangerous precedent. from Brookville, OH by Daniel
Comment: This is just a way to circumvent the Constitution by obama the Socialst. from Fairborn by Dave
