Better Late Than Never

“Congressional Democrats warned President Barack Obama on Tuesday that he sounded too much like George W. Bush when he declared this summer that the White House can ignore legislation he thinks oversteps the Constitution,” the Associated Press reports.

The AP adds, “In a letter to the president, four senior House members said they were ’surprised’ and ‘chagrined’ by Obama’s statement in June accompanying a war spending bill that he would ignore restrictions placed on aid provided to the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.”


“The letter was signed by Appropriations Chairman David Obey (D-Wisc.) and Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.), as well as Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), who chairs the foreign operations appropriations subcommittee, and Greg Meeks (D-N.Y.), who chairs a Financial Services subcommittee that deals with IMF funding,” Politico notes.
