55. All those things are nice, but when there's no money attached to executive orders

the agencies tasked to carry them out can't simply (legally) reprogram funds to do whatever the President asks them to do. And yes, it falls back on Congress - the branch of government that has control over government purses.

Seems it would make more sense to have turned to John Boehner and say, "I want to see you and your possee in my office tomorrow at 8 a.m. sharp - we have work to do." Instead of hitting the campaign trail, oh well, that's politics.
