8. Agencies fall under the Executive Branch.


Agencies fall under the Executive Branch. Obama has the power to end at least the worst excesses of spying on Americans right now. Between 2001 and 2008, unconstitutional actions by the NSA were the fault of B*sh. But Obama has had five years to clean house, and has shown no signs of doing so either before or after the Snowden revelations. The buck stops at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The deficit (and the federal budget as a whole) requires Congressional action. To his credit, Obama has worked well with Congress to reduce the deficit throughout his time in office. The RW might like to hang the entire responsibility for the 'deficet' around Obama's neck, but in order to do so, they display a woeful ignorance of both history & basic civics.
