But doesn't the war president still have line item veto?

At issue, House GOP leaders say, was the late Tuesday night move by Democratic leaders to severely cut back on Republican amendments to a major appropriations bill that funds the Commerce, Justice and other departments.

Republicans had planned to introduce 127 amendments to the spending package, but Democratic House leaders balked, arguing that debating that many amendments would simply take too much time and decided to call a vote. At 8:00 p.m., Democrats cut off debate and called members back to the Capitol. One hour later Democrats closed the vote after prevailing over the GOP minority 179-124.

So clearly if there is a need to limit the spending, then the war president still has the majikal powers of the line item veto....

I mean, what happened to Supporting the WarPresident to support the No-Bid Contracts in a time of Transferring the tax liaiblities unto the unborn baby UBU?
