      Exactly.

      Yes the exec can craft a proposed initiative, but it hardly ever gets used as the actual skeleton of a bill. Look at how budget bills are made. Sure the POTUS presents his recommended budget, but that  is used as an advisor broad outline at best, but is hardly ever the actual core of any of the myriad budget bills.

      cheers,

        In fact, you just said the POTUS doesn't writ legislation.

        It's just above; maybe you should review.  Your own words.  To refresh your memory.

        •  Actually it is what I said (0+ / 0-)

          Maybe you should review how laws and legislation are actually made and passed. I am well aware of what I wrote and it is wholly consistent. The executive branch do not rite any laws at all. They can propose legislation to the legislative branch all they want, but laws are written by the legislative branch not the executive.

          cheers,

      Breaking: It's fifteen years later, the POTUS did not start the process by trying to ram his own legislation through like the Clintons foolishly did, and the process is further along than it ever has been up to this point.

      Other than that, it's just like then.
