Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

Didn’t we fight a revolution to rid ourselves of a monarchy? In fact, wasn’t that the whole basis of our founding? Executive power is not unlimited and is in no way meant to be used to circumvent the legislative process, progressive temper tantrums notwithstanding.

House progressives are calling on President Biden to use his executive power to implement parts of Democrats’ massive legislative agenda, which stalled out in the Senate this month when Sen. Joe Manchin said he cannot vote for it. “Today, the elected leadership of the Congressional Progressive Caucus is calling on the President and all Democrats who believe in the need to Build Back Better for climate, care, immigrants, and those seeking economic dignity and opportunity to come together and deliver for the American people,” the Congressional Progressive Caucus said in a statement.  “That means a whole-of-government approach,” it continued. “In Congress, we will continue to prioritize a legislative path for Build Back Better… In the meantime, the White House must continue to act on a parallel track by using the President’s incredibly powerful tool of executive action.”
