And why does the House not cut his purse strings?

Because Obama would still have to sign the bill which he won't do and the Dem controlled Senate would NEVER vote to overrride the veto.

During President Obama's first term, he made it clear he wasn't too fond of Congress. Now in his second term, he's giving off the same attitude. During a speech today in Burma, Obama said although he's like to impose his will on Congress, he can't.

“As President, I cannot just impose my will on Congress — the Congress of the United States — even though sometimes I wish I could,” he stated. “The legislative branch has its own powers and its own prerogatives, and so they check my power and balance my power.”

It's fair...
