Judd Gregg's Amendment

Senator Judd Gregg, R-NH, has an amendment to the Senate Ethics bill that is something of a watered down line-item veto. Harry Reid, D-NV is trying to prevent it from coming to a vote .

It's a great idea by Gregg, but the way it is playing out makes me wonder if he is getting snookered into withdrawing it.

Yeah, you have to click on "more from this blog." I'd relink, but tomorrow it will be out again. You can only go through the main page with this guy, apparently.

Didn't we go through this with Clinton and it was struck down by SCOTUS?

Line item veto is going to require a constitutional amendment if the Clinton experience is an indicator.
