Bush Vetos Healthcare for Kids

Written by Christianity and the Confusion on October 16th, 2007

From: Care2 Campaign Team

 

With one stroke of his veto pen, President Bush lashed out today at the youngest among us.

Unless Congress acts to overturn President Bush's veto of the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), ten million children will lose their health coverage. Tell Congress to stand firm against President Bush's veto of SCHIP »

The President's proposal for SCHIP funding is not even enough even enough to keep all the children currently in the program covered!

With the war in Iraq costing tax-payers roughly $200 billion each year, the $35 billion Congress is proposing to set aside over the next five years for America's hard working families would be money well spent.

The President doesn't get the last word on SCHIP. We do. In the coming days, the bill will return to Congress for a vote to override his veto. At last count, we still need about two dozen votes to defeat the veto in the House of Representatives.

Please sign the petition today »

Ten million children are waiting for us to take action.

Let's not let them down the way the President and his allies in Congress have.

P.S. If the majority of voters support an expansion of children's health coverage, and the funding would be raised through a tax on cancer-causing cigarettes, why then is Bush playing politics with the health of our children? Please sign today » http://go.care2.com/e/T0EF/Ok3Z/DSkQ

    Bush vetoed a bill extending and reforming the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.
    So we're asking Bush and the Members of Congress who support his veto and all his supporters:
    Would you deny your own family what you'll be denying millions of other families if this bill is vetoed?
    If you don't believe the federal government should support children's health care, how can you in good conscience accept it for your own families?

    Look at the Repugs who upheld the veto.
    Most of them have already declared they're not running in 2008.
    They have nothing to lose and don't care if this issue brings the GOP
    down.
