    I think you can argue that it's become somewhat of a myth lately.
    True,

    In 1959, James Burnham, in Congress and the American Tradition, pretty much laid out reasons for the decline of Congressional power and the rise of an imperial Executive.
    But as The Myth of “Coequal” Branches of the Federal Government goes on to argue,

    In 1787 as Delegates to the convention in Philadelphia prepared to meet, it was generally agreed that the government that would work in America was not the British model. The model they followed was the one practiced by the American colonies—the model of legislative supremacy.

    ...That was the view of the majority of Delegates at the Philadelphia Convention and was summarized by remarks at the Convention on Monday, June 4, of Gunning Bedford, Jr. of Delaware who said that absolutely no check upon the Legislature should be tolerated. “The Representatives of the people were the best Judges of what was for their interest, and ought to be under no external control whatever.”

    ...Before then, two statesmen rose in support of Congressional supremacy: John Calhoun and Henry Clay.

    Calhoun, responded to an assertion by President Jackson in 1834 that the President and Congress were coequal by denying the legitimacy of such an assertion....

    A second statesman, Henry Clay, Dr. Siemers writes, “argued most strenuously for congressional power....
    Edmund Burke: "In vain you tell me that Artificial Government is good, but that I fall out only with the Abuse. The Thing! the Thing itself is the Abuse!"

    Trump Implies Vets Suffering From PTSD 'Can’t Handle' War

    Donald Trump has come under fire for comments he made during a Q&A with retired veterans Tuesday morning.
    Speaking with the Retired American Warriors PAC in Virginia, the Republican nominee suggested veterans suffering from PTSD are not “strong” and “can’t handle” the stresses of war.
    “When people come back from war and combat and they see things that, maybe a lot of the folks in this room have seen many times over, and you’re strong and you can handle it, but a lot of people can’t handle it,” Trump said.
    Although terribly put there is a point here. Many of those who develop PTSD had issues going is, they might have a mental illness which does NOT equate to weak.
