“…everything in our power…”

President Obama recently submitted his proposed $3.8 trillion budget for the fiscal year starting October 1. Not suprisingly, it calls for new/increased taxes on “the wealthy” (my quotes) and short-term spending measures to boost job growth and help the middle class.

Commenting on it while appearing at a community college in northern Virginia, here is what Mr. Obama had to say: “At a time when our economy is growing and creating jobs at a faster clip, we’ve got to do everything in our power to keep this recovery on track.”

That’s the problem, Mr. President: The government has long since lost track of what is constitutionally “in its power”.
