First Promise Broken
Politifact.com determines that President Obama has broken his first campaign promise.
His campaign Web site promised: "As president, Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days." But as Angie Drobnic Holan writes: "[T]he first bill Obama signed into law as president -- the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act -- got no such vetting."
Perhaps in response, the White House this morning Web-published a copy of the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 -- and a comment form.
