Goofs

At the end of the episode, the senior staff recommends to the President that he veto the Estate Tax Bill. They mention that he should "Get out the Stamp". They have a brief argument over whether a veto is signed or stamped. The President corrects them by stating the bill is both signed AND stamped. The President even gets out the box that holds said stamp and shows it to his staff. In reality, there is no stamp and nothing is done to the bill itself. A presidential veto is issued by a "Memorandum of Veto" addressed to the house from which the bill originated. In this case, that would be the House of Representatives. The memo outlines his reasons for the veto. Most Presidents sign that memo but it hasn't always occurred. The memo and the bill are then sent back to the house that issued it. See more »
