The House today failed to override President Bush’s SCHIP veto. The final roll call was 273 to 156, falling 13 votes short of the two-thirds majority needed. This vote picked up eight supporters from the original House vote in September.


Good. I'm sick of them always throwing the tax burden on us sinners. Cut the funding for the war and you'll have the money!

what the hell? is there still a war going on? DISTRACTIONS! using children to gain support. its SICK and you people are falling for it. Bush probably has financial backers from philip morris so they know he Has to Veto it. So they're trying to save Americas children and Bush is a monster that won't give them the power. When everyone already hates Bush so what does it matter anyway? Political posturing at it's worst.
