Who Is Responsible For Lack of Fiscal Cliff Action?


Since the Congress passes laws and the President just signs them, shouldn't Congress pass a law that averts the fiscal cliff and put the onus on the President to either sign it or veto it? That seems to be the best way to get some serious action going to avoid the fiscal cliff, since the President can't actually intitiate anything to stop the U.S. from going off the fiscal cliff. It will require a law from Congress.

    I agree, but my point is that the one party in these negotiations that can actually do something is the Congress, or more specifically the House and Senate. Pass a new budget bill, and send it to the President. The Prez can't initiate action.

    I understand what you are saying about the puppet show, but in reality the puppet masters didn't so so well in the fiscal cliff bill (rich taxes up). Laws are still enacted in the U.S. via Congressional action and the signature of the President.
