Which is it? "The economy is improving, the benefits must end", or "We've lied about the economy, so the benefits must continue"?

There's NO OTHER JUSTIFICATION for demanding they continue.

As you well know, Presidential EOs are usually unfunded madates. Funding still requires legislative vote.

He can redirect money like he's done already.
Somehow the man can find "idle money" just sitting in some FedGov bank account.
His latest "redirect" of money occurred last month when he committed funds to the Global Aids fund in Geneva.

There's what, 16 trillion dollars less than 0 in the federal bank account?

So, no, there's no "idle money", ever.
