Bush quietly exercised the veto at 10 a.m. before leaving the White House for a trip to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to discuss the federal budget and taxes.
Bush said he opposed the bill because it is a step toward “universal coverage, which he opposes on philosophical grounds”. Which is the argument wing nuts alway use when then want to deny basic healthcare coverage to people who can’t afford it.
Does anyone really believe that rich, or even middle class people are going to lose their private health insurance just because the government pays for some poor children to see the doctor?
