Congress seems to have surrendered the power of spending to the executive branch.

Pretty much everything.

They neither read nor write the legislation they do propose, and most of it is pointless anyway as they’ve abdicated power to executive agencies that have the authority to implement rules (law) and fines (taxes) at will.

I’m really not sure what the point of congress is any more besides pretending they’re relevant.
