Veto Pledge Stalled:

As HUMAN EVENTS has reported, House Policy Chairman Christopher Cox (R.-Calif.) has been urging colleagues to sign a letter to the President, pledging to sustain his veto of any bill that would result in unnecessary spending.

To guarantee that a presidential veto will be sustained, at least 146 House Republicans must sign this pledge. So far, only 107 have done so–just three more than when HUMAN EVENTS surveyed the Republican House conference on the issue two weeks ago. If you would like to urge your representative to sign the Cox veto pledge, you can reach his or her office through the Capitol switchboard at (202) 225-3121.
