S-CHIP Veto Sustained

The House just completed voting to override the President’s veto of the S-CHIP, a program that proponents say is “for the chirren” but is a program that actually socializes medicine and puts more of the onus of health care coverage on government. We do not need this program.

Without further ado, the vote is:
Yea: 273
Nay: 156

They needed 289 votes to override therefore, the veto was sustained.

Nancy Pelosi said that it would not cover Illegals. She said it is written into the bill and it is the law of the land. “Illegals do not get benefits.” Where has she been? The Congress voted to allow them to get Social Security benefits and there are millions of ILLEGALS who get health care, food stamps, and a number of other handouts paid for with our tax dollars.

Pelosi is smoking some of the funny stuff they grow out west.

    BD,

    I was just reading your post on the SCHIP. Thanks for the up date.

    I also just looked for my online SS form to see if anything had been done. Guess what’s not there anymore. So now they will get me live and in person. I think they will wish the form had stayed online. When I’m not a happy camper doing what they have suggested that I do which I did. So this should be good.

  2. The Pelosi Congress is a failure in every sense.

    In my mind’s eye, I keep seeing her triumphant look when she took office. Pfffft! Hasn’t exactly turned out that way. Good!

    The House of Representatives has failed to override Bush’s veto of the fraudulent SCHIP bill. AP reports that the pro-override forces fell more than a dozen votes short: 
    The 273-156 roll call was 13 votes short of the two-thirds that majority supp…

    BD,

    The lib’s aren’t upset about the SCHIP not passing they are upset that the over 1000 earmarks they attached to it will not put that money back in their pockets. Like I was telling someone else the SCHIP is probably worth about a buck. It’s the $580 something million in earmarks they aren’t going to get their money grimmy gabbing hands on yet. At least the Beast and Schumuckie had their million turned down on the Woodstock crap. That project is being done by Alan Gerry, a billionire that likes to give a lot of money to the dimwits. What a surprize, huh? Schumuckie is still pushing it. And Clinton didn’t make any sounds.

    This idiot Stark needs to step down. There is no excuse for him. Oh yeah, Murtha’s move to try and dump the Pet Rock and side with the president isn’t flying either.

    I guess Clinton didn’t make any audible sounds would be the correct term.
