Does Paul's plan to eliminate 5 cabinet departments need congressional approval?Submitted by Hoosier_Rat on Mon, 03/19/2012 - 12:37
Did an unsuccessful search here and elsewhere online, couldn't find a definitive answer.
Not much more to ask here than the title. In my discussions with liberals, they've stated that there's no way congress would approve of his budget plan of cutting $1T dollars, which would in part come from the elimination of the departments outlined in his plan.
I'm just not sure this is a submit-to-congress budget item, or can he as an executive eliminate these things? I looked at article 2 of the constitution, can't tell from it.
