Did the candidate precede this statement with "read my lips"? We have a system of checks and balances. Thus a President is not vested with unlimited powers. Therefore, the President (or candidate) does not have sole power to enact or repeal taxes. Thus we legislate through compromise. Sometimes this is good, sometimes not. Our system is not perfect, just the best we can do at the moment. What we need is TERM LIMITS. Preferably ONE TERM. Therefore politicians would not ingratiate themselves to their constituents with pork barrel spending. Secondly we need to limit the legislature from voting themselves pay or benefit increases without the consent of the electorate. Until we realize these changes, we are at the mercy of the politicians.
