Blakes7 saidHe is the most powerful man in the world, with a huge justice dept and revenue service at his command, as well as the ability to introduce legislation and enact executive orders. Yet he's done nothing. Ya gotta wonder...
As I presumed, you can provide no legal or legislative specifics, just vague generalities.
"Most powerful man in the world" but in a constitutional democracy. That tells us nothing. Can the President just snatch people off the streets, seize their assets on his own authority?
What executive order allows the President to prevent CEO compensation? Please tell us. Executive orders apply to the running of the Executive Branch of government, not directly to internal corporate affairs.
The President can propose legislation, but only indirectly, through Members of Congress. There is no such thing as submission of a Presidential Bill to Congress - it can only originate from one of its own members.
And then this indirect bill proposal must deal with the Party of No, blocking anything that has Obama's fingerprints on it. How does he bypass that? With dictatorial powers?
So again, I ask by what specific methods Obama can prevent this CEO travesty? Saying he's "the most powerful man in the world" is an evasion, as I rather expected from you.
By what legal means can any President accomplish what you propose? Please outline the exact legislative and executive steps the President should take, and the Constitutional precedents for them.
