You need to study the Constitution some more and quit relying on biased web sites to provide your information. Look at some Supreme Court decisions and show me where the Justices give the President a power clearly reserved for Congress.

This is one of the area's that's crystal clear in the Constitution and not open for debate. Congress has always been given control over the money as their big check and balance to the executive and judicial powers.

Xcathdra is correct that until Congress delegates this power to the President or anyone else it is completely theirs.


edit on 1-8-2011 by kro32 because: (no reason given)


I doubt that there is a supreme court ruling specifically giving the President this power. On the other hand, one wouldn't expect the congress to violate section 4 of the 14th amendment by utilizing this nation's debt as a bargaining chip for other legislation. So it seems that we're in a grey area here where the President could be put in the position of having to decide to end the constitutional violation being committed by congress and unilaterally pass a debt limit increase thereby insuring that "the nation's debts are not questioned."
