Congress has power over government funding

TeaParty Has Solution to Econ Woes

Star Parker, GOP USA

BHO Doesn't Understand Constitution

Mike Needham, The Federalist

O lectures Congress that “you don’t get to extract a ransom for doing your job.” This misunderstands our government on every level. Congress’s job is to fund gov't operations. It’s a mistake to view the appropriations process as a rubber stamp on gov't. Rather, it is a vital part of our nation’s separation of powers.
