I think there should be a mandatory “US Constitution 101” refresher course for career Congress critters..
Article II, Section 2 states:
He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.
I don’t think Chuck understands the Constitution. When Obama made his declaration that if Congress didn’t act, he had a phone and pen, Schumer gave his consent for Obama’s new legislative powers by standing and clapping.
For Obama, he was willing to share his constitutional duties. Today, he wants to re-write the Constitution. How do you think he’d do on his test?
