Part 19: of a 28-part series
No one can transcend their legal limits (and they have, every one of them) without being effectually checked and restrained by the others. And so, thats how it was set up. Thats what we were saying. Congress we the people have the supreme power.
Poor Bush. Hes taken a whipping. And theres some things hes done that have just caused me concern, definitely. But you know what? He cant be blamed for what Congress did. Congress has charge of all the domestic policies. Do you understand that? He has charge of our foreign policies. But whats happening inside of this country even the weather is Congress fault, not Bushs. We didnt elect him to take charge of the weather- just Congress to take charge of the weather. Thats the law-making body, the body which taxes. Its also the body that regulates banks. It came from there. It directs the domestic policies of the United States, and were hurting.
Look at the clauses in Article 1: The House of Representatives should be composed of members chosen every second year by the people of the several states. They only have two years term of office. Hint, hint alright? Some need to be fired. (I dont mean literally.) The Senate has a six-year term. They used to be chosen by the legislatures. Now they are [chosen by] popular vote. But thats the original idea.
All bills or raising of revenue shall visit the House of Representatives. Everything that weve seen go across the desk of the President to sign has been originated by Congress. Our next Executive either will veto or sign the bills. Its up to you. Do you want more taxation signed, or do you want it vetoed? Thats the decision you have to make. And what will it mean to the economy at this low level of productivity? What will increase productivity? What will decrease it?
