Re House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s Oct. 11 Other Views column , Leader’s plea: Can we talk?
The article refers to our Constitution and the fundamental rights of both the executive and legislative branches of government to operate our republic.
The intention of the Constitution was to avoid an excess of power from either branch.
If Congress passes a law, the president has a right to veto it.
However, there are times when the president will abuse his power by the use of Executive Order to circumvent Congress.
This has happened too many times by the present administration.
It’s time for the president to stop blaming different ideologies. It’s time for the president to work to find a negotiated agreement on the debt ceiling and budget so the economy can move forward and to avoid a severe financial catastrophe to this nation.
