    Pardon me if I'm mistaken, but didn't Congress pass the line item veto a few years ago?

    Would it not make sense for the President to use it on the war funding bill? It seems to me that it may have been better to veto the withdrawal deadline and the pork spending. That way the soldiers in the field can ge the money they need, and there is no deadline to withdraw or pork spending.

    Am I incorrect?

    While I can not confirm I thought it was a no to a line item veto. I believe they do need it!
