    @ Anti-Trump ; Didn't Trump already ask to ban bump stocks, and for building infrastructure ? But, you are right about games politicians play; note that it was Congress who made this particular game. Politicians love to play games. And it is the electorate's fault. They want 'their' politicians to do stuff for them without much, if any, regard for others; that's why they vote for those politicians. Btw, if you think Congress would be part of universal healthcare, you would be mistaken. As members of Congress, they are exempt and have their own healthcare plan; and it will remain in place; you can bet on it.

    @Anti-Trump
    If you think that this all began with President Trump, you are wrong. Obama was a master at this, along with other past Presidents. The article is correct, Congress has given away it's powers and they have only themselves to blame. Don't blame President Trump.

    Ok then -- I'll play --

    How can any future DEMOCRAT president bypass Congress to ban assault weapons?
    to ban bump stocks?
    to give universal healthcare?
    to stop global warming?
    to build infrastructure?
    to assure education?
    to ___________?

    Because Congress already said he can

    Is THAT really the can of worms or stupid game you want to play here?
