Yang isn't going to give you money. Bernie isn't going to tax the rich. That's not how the system works. Presidents don't have that power. they can push for things, they can get members of their party to propose them in congress, but unless they _control_ congress, it won't happen. The only time presidents have that kind of power - the kind Pumpkin is abusing - is when their party backs them up in the face of opposition.
