    Not too clear from the first reference but what Obama signed appears to be the Agricutural Appropriations Bill for 2013. Sometimes politial leaders without a line item veto have to sign off on legislation even though they sometimes contain items (the rider in this case) that they do not like.

    But I do agree that lobbyists have too much power in writing legislation.

    If they have principles and courage, they don't have to sign anything. But I realize that's quite a hypothetical.
