Line-Item Veto

| | Comments (0)
I am in principle opposed to a line item veto. That power belongs to the Congress.

However, I am also in principle opposed to federal power being exerted, unrestrained, over domestic matters. The court refuses to enforce the Tenth Amendment.

As such, I am in favor of a line-item veto. Wielded effectively -- as a President McCain would -- it can drastically cut pork.

I don't know how it can pass Constitutional muster though. It's been rejected once already, although even at the time, people said it could be fixed. I hope so.
