Gerry had a good question in the Health Care thread. My husband and I were discussing it this weekend. To quote Gerry's post: "If it is possible for the POTUS to waive this tax, or delay it, then why do we have to wait for Congress to fix the tax code? Couldn't an executive order simply re-arrange it temporarily?"
How IS it possible for POTUS to delay this? If it is LAW, how can 1 branch do this?
if this is the case, can he/they (POTUS) do this for any law?
It's been a long time since high school government, but I don't remember the president having all these privileges (regardless of who it's been the last 12 years).
What happened to our processes?
