RAHM EMANUEL TRIED TO CUT OFF DICK CHENEY FROM GOVERNMENT WELFARE
This fact, like all Rahm Emanuel Facts, is 100% true! According to Rahm on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives:
I offer a simple amendment that bars the executive branch from being used to fund the office that does not exist in the executive branch: the office of the vice president. ... After the vice president excluded himself from the executive branch, my amendment follows up on the vice president's assertion and restricts the executive branch funding for the vice president's office. It leaves intact his senate presidency office. It delivers two messages: if the vice president is not in the executive branch, then there is no executive branch office to fund, and perhaps more importantly, it underscores that the vice president is not above the law and cannot ignore the rules.
