201. No, I'm defending accuracy
The president can't cut funding anymore than Congress can declare a law unconstitutional. The president can propose a budget, veto a budget, and stand on a soapbox and tell us what we should spend our money on, but ultimately it is the legislature's job to approve and allocate spending. It's the equivalent of someone saying that Congress ruled that a law is unconstitutional. Much is said about the dumbing down of America. We should at least retain the basics of our high school civics classes.
