Part of the job of the President of the United States, whoever holds that office, is leadership. Leadership through FORCE when necessary. Force, but
not subterfuge and deception. There is a huge difference.
The options President Obama has for forcing Congress to produce a budget, if HE cared to see them make one, is to hold them in session FOREVER if he
so desires ...or until such time as their numbered session of Congress closes to the next elected crop to be seated. No vacations...No Holidays...no
NOTHING. Past Presidents HAVE done this to one degree or another occasionally when push came to shove and Congress needed shoved hard.
Of course, I can guess why this President wouldn't have the least bit of interest in using the power to force a budget.
As the OP states? No budget in a formal sense means no limits to stay within
. As Harry himself states there.....raising the debt ceiling set
the budget. That's the most reckless way I can imagine to run a nation the size and importance to world economies as ours. We won't crash by
deliberate design. We''re going to crash by apathy and indifference right through the top leadership.
*I hope the OP doesn't mind my taking that one to address
