I know the tea party isn't really liked but one thing I don't understand is why didn't they get a line item veto. Listen, they may not like Obama but give him and future presidents a line item veto any you will save more money then lost to obamacare and defense spending. If the tea party wants to retain their power they must seek a line item veto. They will get more from obama and the democrats then from their own party. If they want to give citizens back their power then give the president a line item veto. No more pork.
