Congress protests reduction in powers with a non-binding resolution

Thursday, September 13th, 2007 - 1:21 am PDT

An ever-weakening and increasingly irrelevant US Congress this week passed a non-binding resolution that, while having no legal effect, voices a feeble protest to their own complicity in yielding all but the most ceremonial powers of the legislative branch over to the executive branch of the US government. Tomorrow the senate is scheduled to vote on President Bush’s proposal that all of Congress’s future legislation be legally non-binding. The measure has the support of key Democrats and is expected to pass.
