Over at Talking Points Memo is a report that Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is proposing to allow the President to raise the debt limit on his own, after notification of Congress. Sort of a Fiscal War Powers Resolution.
While this may make good tactical sense, it is bad strategy.  In the long run this is the job of the US Congress.  The more the Congress skips its own responsibilities, the more we inch away from representative government and inch toward tyranny.  Not today, or next year or next decade, but eventually.
Hat tip to the Althouse.
