John Edwards is taking his often repeated words towards Congress to the television screen with a new campaign ad, which says in part:
“But if you don’t pass universal health care by July of 2009, in six months, I’m going to use my power as president to take your health care away from you.”
No universal health care for Americans? Then you don’t deserve it either, Congress, says Edwards. An interesting spin on the debate about the use (and abuse, in the case of President Bush) of executive power. What do you think? Would this be a proper use of the president’s powers?
