It's Congress's call

We often read how President George Bush promised not to raise taxes, and then he went back on his word. The president has no authority to raise or impose taxes. Only Congress can do this. Now we hear how Gov. Bill Clinton is going to accomplish all sorts of miracles with his economic programs. If elected, he too will discover that he does not have any power under the Constitution except to execute and administer the laws Congress passes. George Broatch, Bainbridge Island, Wash.
