To quote Laura: Despite becoming law in 1996 the Congressional Review Act had been used only once until this year. It seems the current GOP led Congress stumbled across the law in their desperate search to find ways to undermine President Obama's accomplishments. They have now used the CRA at least 14 times since January in their obsessive vindictive attempt to undo everything Obama. So, even though this provision has been on the books for 20 years only recently have we realized its full potential for abuse. I fully support Senator Booker's bill to end this abuse. The current application of the CRA is not holding the executive branch in check as has been suggested but rather a significant Congressional overreach with the deliberate intent of undermining the executive branch. That's not how our government should work, regardless of which party is in the White House or leads Congress. So no, I don't want to hang on to this law just so Democrats will have the same opportunities for overreach Republicans have so reveled in. At the very least, the law should be amended to demand a two-thirds rather than a simple majority, although the best plan is to eliminate the law. Presently this bill only encourages further partisan divisiveness and undermines thoughtful cooperation. That's no way to run the government.
