I felt that it was a great video. He reminded me about the true purpose of congress which is to provide a voice for the people. Lee Hamilton talked about how congress is supposed to be representative and that the other people are busy. Congress will respond. However... he's made very good points about how the executive branch has gotten a lot more control of the power of congress. Powers and duties that were once within the realms of congress are now in the control of outside agencies in the executive office and the office of budget and management. The President now controls our troops- not the congress... and... we've gone opposite in the direction from what the founding fathers wanted. A representative framework is what our congress is all about. If you don't like the people in power elect your own people in that you like... so... yeah. That was a great video. You get an S&F.
