W w w w w w wait a second here. This isn’t what I learned in fifth grade.
The leftists on the new House Democratic “Full Employment Caucus” are planning to “draft” executive orders for President Obama to sign, according to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas.
Legislation doesn’t have to pass Congress anymore! IT JUST NEEDS TO BE APPROVED BY THE FULL EMPLOYMENT CAUCUS AND SENT STRAIGHT TO THE PRESIDENT.
Because the Caucus, you see, “will be answering the call of all of America,” according to SJL. So now we apparently have a Dictatorship of the Proletariat right here in the United States.
Here’s what she said:
We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work and we’re not doing right by them by creating work. And I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength.
In fact, I think that should be our number one agenda. Let’s write up these executive orders — draft them, of course — and ask the president to stand with us on full employment.
I mean, it says it right there in the Constitution – Article VIII, Section 2:
In case of high unemployment, the House of Representatives shall establish a Full Employment Caucus which shall be empowered to approve laws and send them directly to the president. The president shall be empowered to sign these laws with pride and strength.
During times of especially high unemployment, members of the Full Employment Caucus will also be permitted to cut in line in the House cafeteria.
The Federalist Papers show that the Founders considered giving the Full Employment Caucus the power to declare war, but ultimately left this with Congress.
