    Actually presidents have often times refused to spend appropriations or balked at enforcing laws especially when the legislative branch gives no money for a program. . Governors do it, too. Minnesota has one of the best wetland protection laws on the books. Gov. Arne Carlson signed the bill and immediately announced he was not going to enforce it. Neither has any governor since. Teddy Roosevelt overspent the Navy's annual budget when he sent the Great White Fleet around the world, even though congress refused to approve the funds for the trip. He said at the time something to the effect that as commander in chief he could order the navy to sea. If the fleet ran out of fuel half way around the that was congress's problem.

    However if a president refuses or ignores a law there is a possible legal remedy in a writ of mandamus.
