Veto threats up with Democratic Congress
Question of the Day
Since Grover Cleveland’s veto-heavy first term, which began in 1885 and resulted in 414 vetoes, the only president to have vetoed a single-digit number of bills was Warren G. Harding, who vetoed six bills in his 27 months in office before his 1923 death.
Presidents from George Washington to Bill Clinton have vetoed 2,550 bills, and only 106 of them were overridden by Congress, according to the Congressional Research Service. None of Mr. Bush’s three vetoes has been overridden. Franklin D. Roosevelt holds the record for most vetoes issued, rejecting 635 bills in his 12 years in office. Congress overrode nine of those vetoes.
