Looks like the Democrats have blocked the Line Item Veto bill.  Funny how the supposed party of ethics reform voted against a measure that would have cut much of the pork and earmarks out of our bills.

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement on Wednesday after the Senate Democrats blocked U.S. Sen. Judd Gregg’s A Second Look at Wasteful Spending amendment from coming to a vote:

“Democrats campaigned for the last two years on reform, yet blocked a commonsense measure designed to do just that.  Twenty Democrats currently in the Senate supported a similar measure when it was proposed in 1995, yet today they refused to allow even a simple yes-or-no vote.  Americans demanded reform and we owe it to them.  If we are going to continue to pass real reforms, we must put politics aside and get to work.”

Good work Democrats.  I’m sure Harry Reid is happy with you.
