Line item VETO

Isn't it about time for Congress to finally pass a line item VETO. It would hold those responsible for wasting our money accountable. If Congress sends a bill to the President with "pork" in it, he can remove it without being accused of being against anything. You all know as well as I do that Congress adds their own pet projects to important bills. If the President uses his VETO, he is accused of hating children, or not caring about disaster relief somewhere. The line item would stop a lot of wasted money, or at least put the focus directly where it belongs.
