Douche Of The Week 10.05.07

George W. Bush

WASHINGTON, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- U.S. President George Bush Wednesday vetoed legislation that would have expanded a children's health insurance program by $35 billion over five years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., vowed to work to override Bush's veto of the State Children's Health Insurance Program, which enjoyed bipartisan congressional support.

"By vetoing a bipartisan bill to renew the successful Children's Health Insurance Program, President Bush is denying healthcare to millions of low-income kids in America," Reid said in a statement. "Congress will fight hard to override President Bush's heartless veto."

Bush made no secret he would veto the bill, saying it was a move toward universal healthcare, which he opposes.

Congress sent the legislation expanding the program to the White House Tuesday. The Senate last week passed the measure 67-29, enough to override a veto. The House approved the legislation 265-159, which is not enough to override a veto.

Ok, you can mis-manage a war, kiss the ass of illegal aliens, and hold hands with corporate America all you want. But now you are messing with our own kids. For that George W. Bush, you are the "Douche Of The Week".

This award does have a runner up. Runner up for Douche Of The Week goes to the US Congress for this insurance debacle. Why? Because making the maximum eligible age 25 does not constitute a "child".
