Bush Vetoes SCHIP Bill for Expanded Health Insurance for Children

Bush sought little fanfare when he vetoed the SCHIP bill. It is only the fourth veto of his Presidency (I have seen all the news reports about this, but give me a break he had a do-nothing, do whatever he wants Congress for six years). Harry Reid said of the veto: "Never has it been clearer how detached President Bush is from the priorities of the American people," Reid said in a statement. "By vetoing a bipartisan bill to renew the successful Children's Health Insurance Program, President Bush is denying health care to millions of low-income kids in America." Democrats may try to override the veto. They have the votes in the Senate, but not the house.

Check out the video above. Does Bush like kids as much as they like him?

4 vetos, but how many signing statements invalidating the bills he signed? Sheesh..remember the signing statement on the torture bill. What an ass, an ass who hates poor children. Thanks, Mr. President!
