Obamaphonics Worked for Me

The president simply forgot to read the bill.

In an act surely to prolong an already protracted debate on embryonic stem-cell research, the president just signed an appropriations bill that outlaws the use of federal funds for such research–funding that he ceremoniously approved a matter of days ago.

While the funding ban is technically only in place through the end of the fiscal year (September 30), the federal funding can only return before then by Congress passing a bill and the president signing it into law. Perhaps this will give the president some time to read up on the issue, find out what his pay grade is, and make the right decision the next time.
