Congress defeats Bush veto.

"Congress defeats Bush veto."

“Congress on Thursday overturned President George W. Bush’s veto last week of a popular water projects bill, marking the first time Congress has mustered enough votes to override Bush.” The House of Representatives did the same on Tuesday ensuring the measure’s passage into law.

UPDATE: Veto overrides occur very rarely.
