Removing "Every president since" line[edit]

I believe first paragraph of the United States section was potentially misleading, originally stating that every president since Ulysses S. Grant has asked for line-veto powers. This was not supported by the citation, which says 'presidents have been coveting line-item veto power since before the civil war: Everyone from Ulysses S. Grant to Ronald Reagan entreated Congress to give them line-item veto authority'.

I believe the intention of the source was not to imply that every single president between those two have asked for line-veto powers. Even if that was the intention, the source is now out of date.

I have changed the wording to : 'Dating to before the American Civil War, presidents including Ulysses S. Grant and Ronald Reagan have sought line-item veto powers. It was not until the Clinton presidency that Congress passed such legislation.' Shinsukato (talk) 12:12, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
