The Line-Item Veto

By Austin Russell, Generation Y.

My government teacher says that the president lost the line item veto because congress is given the “power of the purse,” and that the line item interferes with that.  Still, it seems that a line item veto would be perfectly constitutional if Congress could challenge each veto on each line item.

I don’t understand why it was knocked down in the first place.

I am worried about the budget, and the future.
