President Obama continued the drumbeat for his jobs plan on Tuesday, even as White House officials acknowledged that the bill’s prospects in the Senate were tenuous and Mr. Obama himself vowed not to wait for Congress to advance ideas to get American back to work.
In what sounded almost like an outright acknowledgement that Congress would reject his jobs proposal, Mr. Obama said he was making plans for what to do afterward. “If they don’t pass the whole package, we’re going to break it up into different parts,” he said, echoing White House officials who have said that they would seek to push individual components of the bill that had the best chance for passage.
Meeting with his Council for Jobs and Competitiveness for the unveiling of yet another set of ideas to increase economic growth, Mr. Obama also said that he had instructed White House officials to “scour” a jobs council report in order to identify executive actions that the administration could take.
That is what Mr Obama had to say about the legislation process. Basically he said that he wants things done HIS WAY regardless of the political process or what the Constitution states. Let us hear from another President shall we concerning Presidential powers.
“In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” –Thomas Jefferson, fair copy of the drafts of the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798
Is it any wonder why the progressives hate the Constitution? It is SO RESTRICTIVE of their desire for unlimited power.
