News For Kids: How A Law Stops Being A Law

Hey kids! Remember a couple years back when we found out that the president was breaking the law by illegally wiretapping citizens anytime he felt like it? Well, as of this week, that's not illegal anymore! So if anyone says to you, "Hey, the president broke a law." You can say right back to them, "What law? I don't see any law anywhere." Because thanks to our Democratic Congress, that law's all gone!

Sound confusing? Maybe this'll help...
