Above the Law...Again?

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.

Full story at Raw Story.

If true, I'm not surprised. If true, nothing will happen because Democrats are spineless. All the laws in the world are worthless if no one enforces them. Kudos to Waxman, though. He constantly stands up for average Americans.
