What Is a Day in Obama's Eyes?


The House passed the health care bill yesterday, and President Obama plans to sign it on Tuesday. Americans for Tax Reform notes that doing so will "violate his promise to post on the Internet all non-emergency legislation that lands on his desk for a full five days before signing them into law." But we already know that "many days" elapsed between the posting of the legislation (and the reconciliation bill that modifies it) on Thursday and its approval by the House on Sunday. If three days can be "many," surely two days can equal five.
