So now we can see how sincere the two presidential candidates are in their support of the line-item veto. Both said they believed in and supported that issue. Before January 20 (before Obama is no longer a Senator), I'd like to see McCain and Obama co-sponsor a simple line-item veto bill and punch it through Congress. I'll bet GWB will sign it.
Both men are in a good position to effect the changes they promised in their campaigns. The line-item veto would go a long way toward ridding us of pork-barrel projects and entitlements we can no longer afford. It would be a good start on their promises for both men.
I've emailed a suggestion to my Congressmen to challenge them to do this. Why don't you do that too...
