Automatic Presidential signature on Congressional Bill is minimally insulting to the People of the U.S. The President isn’t that busy or shouldn’t be so busy he can’t sign in person. It could have waited for his return. If not, it could be carried by special messenger to him personally. We don’t want the impression of an absentee President left to the world.
But what will happen if a President is in coma, but the public isn’t informed. Some staffer decides to use the automatic bill signer. No? They why are Congressmen and women surprised to find words in bills they passed they never entered into the bill. Staffers make changes and tell no one. Somehow, the bill becomes law that way, and it can’t ‘be changed.
Its more than Casual Friday. Its casual governance.
