Wade-Davis Bill (1864). At the end of the Civil War, this bill created a framework for Reconstruction and the readmittance of the Confederate states to the Union. Congress passed the Wade-Davis Bill, but President Lincoln chose not to sign it, killing the bill with a pocket veto. Lincoln continued to advocate tolerance and speed in plans for the reconstruction of the Union in opposition to the Congress.
"I promise to veto any bill that touches Obamacare in any way." ~ B.H. Obama... but he still blames the republicans. Ya ... blaming others for his faults, mistakes, and screw-ups is his modus operandi (MO).
Just read that Christie pocket vetoed this. With a pocket veto, he only had to wait 10 days and not sign it. The bill died. Had he vetoed it, he would have had to give a reason. With a pocket veto, he doesn't have to explain a thing.....
