The President’s Fault?

For those who like to blame the budget problems of this country on President Bush and his loose spending habits combined with his tax cuts, here is a bit of information from Professor Walter E. Williams:

By the way, it’s sheer constitutional ignorance to say that President Bush spends or lowers taxes. Article I, Sections 7 and 8, of the U.S. Constitution gives Congress authority to spend and tax. The president only has veto power that Congress can override.

The entire article, entitled Is There a Federal Deficit, is definitely worth the ttime.
