White House Threatens Democracy With Veto
George W. Bush has used his veto power exactly once during his six long, miserable years in office -- and that was to ensure Ronald Reagan's legacy of Alzheimer's would continue for all elderly Americans. What's next for Bush's once-used veto pen? Hint: The legislation involves the two things he hates most. Okay, here's another hint: Those two things are Washington and Democracy.
The House will vote Friday on a bipartisan bill to finally give DC a real-live voting representative in Congress, while also giving the Republicans a safe-forever new seat in Utah. This seems like a nice compromise that would finally end two centuries of taxation without representation for the lowlife residents of the District. So why does the White House oppose it?
A Bush spokesman said last week that the White House opposed the bill on constitutional grounds.HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
