We are to believe that congress pushed all of this through and the president was powerless to do anything but watch.<quoted text> Far left agenda was pushed during the Bush year and yes even during the Reagan years. Republicans didn't have control of Congress. Do you really believe that if Reagan was as corrupt as Obama or was willing to ignore the Constitution like Obama does then much of the Democrat agenda from the past thirty five years would have come to fruition. The republicans of today share the same morals,values and principles as the republicans of a hundred fifty years ago,unfortunately many democrats have no conscience.
Ever hear of the presidential power of veto?
Nothing got through that Bush/Reagan did not allow to get through.
