44. Excuse me, but who gave the executive branch of our
government more power than the legislative branch? I think you need some civic lessons on the equal powers held by all three branches of our government.

Feingold is DOING HIS JOB! And I sincerely wish people would learn why the Constitution granted equal powers to Congress and the WH.

Fyi, a U.S. Senator not only has the same power as a president regarding legislation, s/he does NOT work for the president, s/he works WITH the President and that Senator is ENTITLED to be consulted on legislation, not told how to vote.

This is so disturbing as we seemed to understand the balance of powers when Bush was trying to be king, and now, Democrats on this board, appear to be suffering from amnesia and have completely gone over to the rightwing view that the president doesn't have to bother with Congress at all. Disgraceful to call a U.S. Senator, one of the best we have, a 'Diva' for doing his job.
