However, the President has relatively few powers compared to Congress. In addition to signing bills into laws once they pass through Congress, the president may also veto a bill and leave it up to Congress to override or revise the bill. Furthermore, presidents can issue proclamations or executive orders (during emergencies), which completely bypass Congress and would require a bill to then override his executive order should they choose to do so. However, unless the bill passes through Congress, the President does not come in contact with it, and has to wait until it is passed through both the House of Representatives and the Senate for him/her to be able to sign it into a law or veto it. Presidents become the spokesperson for bills like the Gun Show Background Check Act and promote them with persuasive speeches and events, urging Americans to exert pressure on law makers.
So if the house had to make changes to the bill, they would not have the necessary number of democratic votes to pass the bill. In order to battle this issue Senate Leader, Harry Reid made a deal with Pelosi that the House would pass the Senate bill if the Senate agreed to pass a separate bill by the House that made changes to the Senate version of the ACA. The second proposed bill was known as the Reconciliation Act. The house ended up passing the ACA and their very own Reconciliation Act. The ACA was ready for the President to sign it and be put into action; however, the Senate still needed to finish the final stages of passing the Reconciliation Act from the house.
He then pointed out some of the issues in which he and the supposed shoe-in winner Clinton differ: raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, his opposition to the Keystone pipeline, his opposition the war in Iraq and his opposition to the USA Patriot Act. Sanders unambiguous reply was prompted when a reporter said to him: "You said you won 't criticize or attack Hillary Clinton, certainly. But you did seem to draw some implicit contrasts when you said you don 't take money from Super PACs and you voted against the Iraq war ..." That is when Sanders lit off, refusing the bait. He instead took the opportunity to relate his pinnacle issue, the one from which he says all other issues cascade: "The collapse of the American middle class ... the obscenity of the kind of income and wealth inequality that we have today." He reiterated his refusal "to get into the game" of attacking his main opponent, Hillary Clinton.
I predict that in the Democratic Party I believe that Bernie Sanders will not make and that Hillary Clinton will win in the Democratic Party. In the Republican Party I believe that the next person to drop out is John Kasich. The next person that I think is going to drop out is Ted Cruz. That would leave Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Party and Donald Trump in the Republican Party. In the Republican Party there is currently three people running for President because Marco Rubio has dropped out of the election.
Now the Supreme Court is deciding whether or not it will allow millions of undocumented immigrants to apply for programs that make them eligible for work authorization and benefits through the programs by the President. The President can make executive actions that effect the regulations of the governments issues, when he sees that congress is not taking action and that is what Obama did. The founding father made it difficult to create laws, they know if a person or group of people is given too much power then the government could be more easily manipulated so why do they want to over step an executive order, it that is why it was created
The president was preforming a ministerial action because there was not an exercise of discretion in carrying out an act of Congress. President John argued that the Court should not interfere and tell him what his duty is and compel him to preform it; the president is beyond the control of any other branch
The author believes that it is the Congress, not the Supreme Court to decided Ted Cruz’s eligibility to be a president. After the final electoral vote, in accordance with the 12th Amendment, Congress has the authorities to reject to count any electoral votes if the Congress doubts his eligibility. Similar with the way the Congress judges a Senator’s birth certificate dispute for Senate election, the Constitution makes the Congress the judge of birth certificate dispute or any other kinds of presidential eligibility argument for the presidential election. In addition to the Congress, the voters can decided if Ted Cruz can be a president by choosing whether casting the ballots on him or
Congressmen aren’t elected through a slate of people voted by citizens to vote for citizens, so why is the president? If the government is truly to be by the people, why can this happen? If the answer is, it isn’t, that’s not the way the founders intended it, then we shouldn’t use a hastily created system made by people who came from a time when the common man was illiterate. It was a system created because the founders believed that the average person couldn’t truly be trusted electing the leader, so they created a system to separate their decisions from how the president is picked. Whether or not the founders were
It suggests that the government, but more specifically Congress, puts gun violence above the means of fighting against it. Even more so, it shows that gun violence reins over attempts to hinder it in any way and how Congress is weak because it consistently fails to effectively do anything about gun violence in America. However, congressional gridlock can be more than Congress’ refusal to pass laws that are important The United States’ wellbeing. It can be the slow-moving process of passing a law or bill to benefit Americans. For example, immigration reform has been being considered since past President Barack Obama was reelected in 2012, as stated by The Washington Post (Nakamura, O’Keefe 4).
