Line item veto = ability for Chief Executive to selectively pass or veto individual items in appropriations bills (approve line items 1,2,3,4,5,6, and 7, veto 8, 9, and 10)...

Utterly nullifies crap like this, which is why it never gets enough "oomph" behind it to get it passed. Newt Gingrich got really, really close back in the "Contract With America" era...
