Our system of checks and balances was designed to protect us from such executive overreach.

Our Founding Fathers, never forget, were British subjects and knew British history. They knew how Parliament's control of the purse had always acted as a safeguard against excesses by the monarchy. Schumer is not only trying to overturn our history and rewrite the Constitution, he's also advocating eradicating our heritage from the Brits as a free people.

A country which had a different tradition was France. When its financial situation became dire Louis XVI had to call the ignored Estates General into session to bail him out. That led to the madness of the French Revolution.

Not at all.  He's just following the program his minders have laid out.
