Obama does not have "all" the leverage. This is just perception encouraged by the media. He has no Constitutional authority to craft a budget and make the House approve it. This idea stems from the idea that we have one man govt or a dictator. There once was a time when few knew who the president was because he played a minimal role. We should go back to that and enforce the Constitution. It's precisely because we don't follow the Constitution we're having so many of these problems. A divided govt is good for the country.
