Line item veto amendment

(1/2) > >>

A18:
With the renewed talk of fiscal responsibility...

The Line Item Veto Act of 1996 was signed into law by president Clinton and struck down as unconstitutional in Clinton v. City of New York.

Do you think this is something bipartisan that could actually pass Congress?

MonkeyPooo4U:
The line item veto is really too much of a double-edged sword for anyone to pass.

The though is "don't pass today what could screw you over tomorrow".

A18:
What, specifically, are you worried about?

WalterMitty:
the good ol line item veto.  i remember that used to be a favorite issue of the republicans.

i dont know if they should pick up that issue again.  i mean, bush doesnt even use regular vetoes, what makes you think hed use a line item veto?

He doesn't use 'regular' vetoes because there's nothing to veto. The White House works closely with Congress.
