When Congress is in session, the president may, within the 10-day period, exercise a regular veto by sending the unsigned bill back to the chamber of Congress from which it originated along with a veto message stating his reasons for rejecting it. Currently, the president must veto the bill in its entirety. He may not veto individual provisions of the bill while approving others. Rejecting individual provisions of a bill is called a "line-item" veto. In 1996, Congress passed a law granting President Clinton the power to issue line-item vetoes, only to have the Supreme Court declare it unconstitutional in 1998.
Bill becomes law without president's signature
When Congress is not adjourned, and the president fails to either sign or veto a bill sent to him by the end of the 10-day period, it becomes law without his signature.
The pocket veto
When Congress is adjourned, the president can reject a bill by simply refusing to sign it. This action is known as a "pocket veto," coming from the analogy of the president simply putting the bill in his pocket and forgetting about it. Unlike a regular veto, Congress has neither the opportunity or constitutional authority to override a pocket veto.
Before you criticize someone you should walk a mile in their shoes, that way when you do criticize them you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
There is another thread on this forum which asks when the US fell from greatness. I said, of course, when the country began allowing itself to be run by corporations. I must add to the list:
While I suppose this nation was never fully a moral one (with the whole slavery issue and what not), at least we kept up with the rest of the world's morality. We don't even do that anymore.
There is no reason that we are not able to try these people and imprison them when they are found guilty. There is no reason we cannot stop torturing. There is no reason that we need extraordinary rendition.
Obama has failed to end all of these things and I am greatly disappointed because of it. It sickens me that any of you can support torture, rendition, or jailing without trial.
Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
