[ # ] Sick Child Left Behind
September 21st, 2007 under Bush, ChristianWalk, poor

Don’t tell me about compassionate conservatism! President Bush hates poor children! His threat yesterday to veto a bill that would renew and expand the popular State Children’s Health Insurance Program even ticked off Republicans!

“I’m disappointed by the president’s comments,” said Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), who urged Bush, in an early-morning telephone conversation yesterday, to support the emerging bipartisan compromise. “Drawing lines in the sand at this stage isn’t constructive. . . . I wish he would engage Congress in a bill that he could sign instead of threatening a veto.”

“I’m very, very disappointed,” said Sen. Gordon Smith (R-Ore.). “I’m going to be voting for it.”
