Democratic Governors Discuss Bypassing Congress With Obama

According to The Hill:

Gov. Jack Markell, the Democratic governor of Delaware and the vice chairman of the National Governors Association, told The Hill that the meeting was “very good” and said many of the governors were responsive to ideas about bypassing Congress.

“There was a sense that none of us should wait, we can’t wait for things to happen in Congress,” Markell said of the meeting. “We’re going to do what we can do [now].”

If the Democrat Senate leadership had actually tried to pass a budget some time in the last 3 years, I’d say there was some merit to this.  As it is, it just looks like using a lot of heretofore dormant executive power.
