    • On February 12, 2009, by tinman1 - A Line item Veto would allow for stricter controls on spending from the Congress and significantly reduce earmarks, that is if used in a fiscally sound way, though it seems that nobody in DC knows what the words "fiscally sound" mean anymore...

    • On March 27, 2009, by eydaimon - tinman: it also gives the executive branch even MORE power. The scales and balances are already horribly scewed, why would you support them being even more so? There's a reason why we have a congress to override the president. This country isn't supposed to have a KING.
