Except that isn't how this administration works.
They govern by Fiat.
Our messiah just increased the pay for everyone in DC that has been a part of the failure that brings us to the edge of total bankruptcy. Did he do that to make sure no one in the elected Congress would be afraid to raise taxes on themself, if necessary?
Barry and his band of green Czars tried to get their Cap & Tax tru Congress, but it bombed, so they just turned that chorre over their EPA, and it's proceeding at a fast pace now.
This gun grab is just V 2.0 of his Fast & Furious program.
Our newly elected POTUS does see any need for laws, he is after all the messiah.
