Bush Vetoes SCHIP Bill

George W. Bush has vetoed 4 bills in his 6 years in office. The latest is for SCHIP, a bill that would have given healthcare to about 10 million children from families who make too much to qualify for Medicaid but not enough to get good insurance, because he believes it is "a step towards federalization of healthcare." As you might remember, two of the veotes were to expand stem-cell research, because it "would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others."

But vetoing a bill that would insure millions of American children wouldn't be supporting the taking of an innocent human life, if any of those children were to die because they had no healthcare benefits. Right . . . .

In other news, up is down, left is right, and women have equal pay.
