Nope, the line item veto has been declared unconstitutional in the United States. In 1996, Congress passed a law legalizing the line-item veto, and it came into effect on January 1, 1997. But in June of 1998, the Supreme Court declared the law unconstitutional on the grounds that it violated separation of powers. It would take a constitutional ammendment to legalize the line-item veto.
