Is Congress asleep? The power grab by the executive branch by appointing czars (even when called special advisors) who require neither an FBI clearance nor a congressional hearing and who report only to the White House defeats the Constitutional checks and balances. Congress is supposed to represent the people and have sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution. The majority of members of Congress served during the previous administration and complained loudly about the executive powers of the Bush administration. Is loyalty to the citizens and our Constitution secondary to party affiliation? This Independent voter wants to know.
If we survive the Obama administration may we be lucky enough to elect someone like Sarah Palin to restore honesty in government.
