  •  Except the president uses 'signing statements' (0+ / 0-)

    to ignore the stuff he considers 'unconstitutional.' That is, in effect, nullification.

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.

    •  It doesn't change what the law *is*. It's (0+ / 0-)

      a statement by a President that he intends to violate his oath and betray the country.

      Voters keep re-electing them after they do it, though.  WE were intended to be the primary check on Presidents who just blatantly refuse to do their jobs.

      This place needs a PVP server.
