Demonstrating again his "No lobbyist left behind" principles, Bush tried to "quietly" veto the renewal and expansion of the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).

The just passed bill was in fact a cure in response to harsh new administrative rules from the Cheney administration that would have REDUCED coverage for poor children even under the existing program.
We Will Not Be Quiet About The Veto Of Children's Health Care
In vainly attempting to defend his veto Bush actually said,

"No one goes without health care in America. After all, you just go to an emergency room."

The last time someone said something that insufferably ignorant and insensitive, it was "Let them eat cake", perhaps not by coincidence a statement from someone else who acted as an absolute monarch.

This most cruel and heartless of vetoes would not only INCREASE the real cost to government by cutting back on preventative care, those emergency room visits are not free to the patients either, who get dunned into bankruptcy with outrageous charges.

But to keep his cronies in the insurance and tobacco rackets as fat and happy as possible, Sir Silver Spoon would sacrifice the health of an entire generation of children, including all the snowflake babies he is so fond of posing for photo ops in front of.

UPDATE: Senate Republican minority leader's office behind vicious smear attack of brain-injured child.
