Pretty Much Sums It Up
Word on the street is that it's not looking good for an override to the veto.
That story is here.
That is why the Farmer-Labor Caucus is calling on you.
Michele Bachmann voted against this thing and will probably vote to uphold the veto to make sure kids don't have access to health care. You can call her at 202-225-2331 or 651-731-5400 or 320-253-5931. Leave a message at all three just to be sure.
Then you can call these Democrats who voted against it in the House.
Reps. David Boren (Okla.), Betty Castor (Fla.), Bobby Etheridge (N.C.), Baron Hill (Ind.), Jim Marshall (Ga.), Mike McIntyre (N.C.), and Gene Taylor (Miss.).
Also in the list of Dems who voted "nay" is Dennis Kucinich who didn't vote for SCHIP because it doesn't do enough.
“HR 676 [not SCHIP] guarantees full health care coverage for all children. When considering a universal health care proposal, HR 676, the Medicare for All bill, is the only health care plan that addresses three important issues: quality, accessibility, and cost. HR 676 stands alone in an increasingly crowded field of efforts to provide health care coverage to all,” Kucinich said.
He is a person of integrity that is for sure. It will be interesting to see how he votes on the override.
How do you think Kucinich should vote on the override?
