The Spring Festival holiday in February was a peak period for such services as more pet ow
ners tended to make use of luxury pet hotels as ordinary boarding kennels were overbooked.
Beijing-based Liu Ronghuan, 35, a college teacher, said she was quite satisfied with the pet hotel she chose for her cat.
It offered fancy services like massages, beauty salons, and pet portrait photos. The s
even-day stay cost Liu about 5,000 yuan, almost the same price as a three-star hotel room.
“Compared with the price, I cared more about whe
ther my cat was having an enjoyable time during the family reunion time,” Liu said.

There’s a big difference between forcing a veto and overturning it. Vetoes can be overridde
n only by a two-thirds supermajority vote in both chambers on Capitol Hill. In the House, Democrats have
235 seats, Republicans have 197 and there are three vacancies. Since the measure overturning the national emer
gency won 245 votes there, that means Democrats would have to pick up an additional 43 to 45 House Republican vote
s to get to 288-290 and a two-thirds majority, depending on how many lawmakers vote. Assuming the bill passes in
the Senate with four Republicans, they’d need to pick up an additional 16 Republican votes.

We’re taking for granted that presidents would not want to use the veto, but some clearly relish their fights aga

othing” Congress. The most veto-happy President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, read a veto message aloud to Congress.
