The truth is there is too much power in the Executive Branch. Congress just doesn’t guard their appointed powers with enough jealousy. If a President acts contrary to the Constitution, what is Congress going to do? Power of the purse apparently isn’t enough to stop the branch of government that has complete control over the federal bureaucracy, especially if one House of congress is controlled by the Presidents party and they support his policies. What of impeachment? Forget it; we’ll never get a conviction as long as party politics rule the day.
