Quote from jficquette:
I guess you little pea brain doesn't remember that Clinton signed that act.
You little dems just don't get it. Truth just constantly evades you.
I'm not a registered Democrat, moron.
But like all of you idiots that can't get enough of Rush Limbaugh down in San Diego, I guess that if you keep saying it over and over again - - - it somehow becomes "true".
For what it's worth, this legislation by-passed the substantive policy committees in both the House and Senate. Thus, there were never any hearings nor opportunities for recorded committee votes. It was an omnibus bill that came from the leadership of the Republican-controlled Senate and House.
And yes, Clinton did sign the Act into law.
Was the outgoing President in a position to veto anything at that time?
You tell me.
And before you answer you might wish to brush up a bit on how legislation makes its way through the Executive Branch and into Law.
