Homework Help: GOVERNMENT

Posted by Suzi on Thursday, April 19, 2007 at 5:56am.

Please help. I'm trying to figure these True or False questions.

A President's threat to grant amnesty can sometimes convince Congress to make changes in a bill to satisfy the President's objections. T or F I think it's true. Am I right?

As the nation has industrialized and grown in other ways the people have demanded that the Federal Government play a larger role, thus the powers of the President have also expanded. T or F

Do you know what amnesty is?

The second is debatable, but I think most folks would argue against the rationale presented. Presidential power has increased because presidents exercised it, and neither Congress or the Courts curtailed it. Thus one got stronger, and the others weaker. This is the way dictators rise to power. In the area of war powers, the US President is far from where we started 200 years ago. Since when has the Congress even bothered to declare War?
