PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Grover Cleveland (1837–1908), America’s 22nd president vetoed 414 bills, more than twice the total vetoed by all previous presidents. President Grover Cleveland - The Veto President The
reason for the onslaught of vetoes was that Congress, in the 1880s and 1890s, decided to give taxpayer dollars to various special interests in return for votes. President Cleveland drew a line in the sand and said “no”. For a U.S. president, one test of this courage is the willingness to veto bad bills—bills that spend too much money or that contradict the American standard.

Students will read and analyze President Grover Cleveland’s Veto Message to the House of Representatives from February 16, 1887. They will answer guided question and then participate in a short - small group discussion.
