Subject: Jazz Butcher song in the news
Those of you in the US may have noticed a Jazz Butcher reference
in the news. It seems the House of Representatives passed
yesterday a bill granting to the President a line item veto.
As an aside for non-USans, this will dramatically increase the
power of the President by allowing him to veto portions of
budget legislation rather than all or nothing, which is his
choice under the current system. It's also unconstitutional,
but that doesn't seem to matter. Anyway, President Reagan
pushed for this power for all of his eight years, so as a
tribute, the House passed the bill on Reagan's birthday,
making the line item veto...
yep, President Reagan's Birthday Present!
(Happy Birthday dear Mr. President...)
