  • The inevitable effect of a line item veto is to hold individual items of pork barrel legislation up for public view and ridicule. Given the recently passed "stimulus" legislation, which was nothing more than a piece of massive pork barrel appropriations, I thing it is a reasonable conclusion that the Congress, as currently constituted, would never even consider passing such a law.
