Congressman writes White House: Did President knowingly sign law that didn't pass?

Representative Henry Waxman (D-CA) has alleged in a letter to White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card that President Bush signed a version of the Budget Reconciliation Act that, in effect, did not pass the House of Representatives.

Further, Waxman says there is reason to believe that the Speaker of the House called President Bush before he signed the law, and alerted him that the version he was about to sign differed from the one that actually passed the House. If true, this would put the President in willful violation of the U.S. Constitution.

The full text of the letter follows:





This guy just doesn't know how to color within the lines at all, does he?

Maybe he should attend his own "No Child Left Behind" program and try to get it right over the next three years....


Oh, that's right, I forgot he conveniently managed not to fully fund that program, didn't he?

I guess you're out of luck, George.... And, unfortunately, so are we...

:shk:

Sounds like they must have gotten the wrong version sent up from the Congress. Saying he's in "willful violation of the Constitution" is a bit overboard...I mean the President can sign whatever piece of paper he wants to, it's just not going to be a law unless it was passed properly by the Congress, no?
