Bush vetoes bill that would help childrenMikey 2 comments
U.S. President George Bush has privately vetoed a bill that would have expanded government-provided health insurance for children.
He also recently vetoed another similar bill that would have expanded the health program. Said the President:
"Ultimately, our nation's goal should be to move children who have no health insurance to private coverage, not to move children who already have private health insurance to government coverage."
Private health insurance is all well and good if you can afford it. But apparently the President thinks only those who can afford it are deserving, and everyone else, tough sh*t for being poor.
Being in Australia I am admittedly looking in from the outside, and from where I sit it looks rather heartless. Perhaps spending a little less on manufacturing bombs for a bogus war might have made a difference.
