President Again Vetoes Children's Insurance Bill
For the second time in three months, President Bush yesterday vetoed legislation that would have expanded the State Children's Health Insurance program by $35 billion over five years and would have boosted its enrollment to about 10 million children. Bush cited the same reasons that led him to veto a version of the bill on Oct. 3 -- that it raised cigarette taxes and provided coverage for children of middle-class families instead of focusing on the working poor.
No comment necessary. Middle Class kids can't get health coverage because it would raise cigarette taxes. Highlights the man's priorities nicely, doesn't it?
