My ONE regret: American voters are so asleep at the switch, that Presidents will always abuse this power in return for campaign cash and other perks.Jedi,Do you think Bush has? Can you give me an instance?Maybe it's my hope but I don't think American voters are asleep at the switch, atleast not all. I think the line item is a good thing, could be a good thing if the President at the time had the ability to use common sense along with the LI Veto. An example: How many years is the government going to give the researcher in MN 500k (its been the last ten years) to study how worms are destroying the forest floors of MN?If the President has wise advisors that mark and point out silly stuff like that, the line item could be a very useful tool.philz
