Bush Proudly Vetos Children’s Health Insurance

In a stunning about face from reality, Bizzaro Bush proudly vetoed a bipartisan bill that would have covered previously uninsured children (pictured above). He invited the Charles Dickens extras and their stern parents to look on as he discussed the importance of an ownership society, how filthy socialists are, and on the importance of starting young. No, not because young minds are easier to mold. Those kids aren’t insured. They gotta learn before they come down with a fatal disease like a sore tooth (August).

In reality, Bush did nothing of the kind. I think this says it all (Yahoo, AP):

Bush vetoed the bill in private.

That’s Bush for you. Typical compassionate Republican:

But such votes are uncomfortable for GOP lawmakers. It is a popular program with the public, making some Republicans wary of sticking with Bush on such an issue with the 2008 elections looming. Of the 43 million people nationwide who lack health insurance, more than 6 million are under 18 years old. That’s more than 9 percent of all children.

There isn’t a single Republican candidate who isn’t cheering him on, even if they are following the bravery of their mentor and doing so in private.
