BlackHorse....you are talking about the Line Item Veto. I am speaking of a Clean Bill to repeal the O-Care with no additional legislation attached. There is a big difference. Here is how it works, and my statement is based on a high percentage of Republicans, Tea Party, Independents, and Libertarians becoming the Majority in Congress in the 2014 election.

From Wikipedia:
See also: List of United States presidential vetoes, Line-item veto in the United States, and Pocket veto
All legislation passed by both houses of Congress must be presented to the President. This presentation is in the President's capacity as Head of State.

If the President approves of the legislation, he signs it into law. According to Article 1. Section 7 of the Constitution,[11] when the president chooses, if he does not approve, he must return the bill, unsigned, within ten days, excluding Sundays, to the house of the United States Congress in which it originated, while the Congress is in session. The President is constitutionally required to state his objections to the legislation in writing, and the Congress is constitutionally required to consider them, and to reconsider the legislation. This action, in effect, is a veto.
If the Congress overrides the veto by a two-thirds majority in each house, it becomes law without the President's signature. Otherwise, the bill fails to become law unless it is presented to the President again and he chooses to sign it.

A bill can also become law without the President's signature if, after it is presented to him, he simply fails to sign it within the ten days noted. If there are fewer than ten days left in the session before Congress adjourns, and if Congress does so adjourn before the ten days have expired in which the President might sign the bill, then the bill fails to become law. This procedure, when used as a formal device, is called a pocket veto.

Thank you for your interest, are you one that loves to pick apart and stir the pot?
