Democrat Engel Wants The President to Dictate Debt Ceiling

During an Interview with Fox News, Democratic Congressman Eliot Engel, explains that he wants President Obama to invoke the 14th Amendment.

This is a Dictator type mentality...from a "Centrist"?

Too bad for them that the president has no such power. (Notice the wording in section 5!)

14th amendment:

Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
