Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris revealed she would take quick action, should she win the 2020 presidential election, to “stop Big Pharma.”
“As president, I’ll give Congress 100 days to send legislation to my desk to stop Big Pharma from raking in massive profits at the expense of Americans,” Harris tweeted. “If Congress won’t act, I will.”

Several people who responded to the tweet were quick to note that Harris—in her current capacity—is able to change the law, but not if she were to leave the legislative branch:
Did you know that you are currently in the branch of government that writes laws but if you become president you will no longer be in that branch anymore? https://t.co/TYykK8OQvX

You should read the Constitution.
You'll be surprised by the fact that you can't write or change legislation on your own.

Trump's literally trying to do that right now, and you're opposing him.

You are a member of Congress. Tell your coworkers to write some legislation. 🤷🏽♀️
