Bush Vetoes Expansion of Kids' Health Insurance Program

I guess he wants to use that money to start a with Iran. Does this moron realize what he is doing to the Republican party? How do you explain this one to the electorate? There is common theme: Bush is not interested in something unless he is hurting people:
President Bush on Wednesday vetoed legislation expanding a children's health insurance program by $35 billion over five years.

Speaking in Pennsylvania, Bush said he vetoed the bill because it was a step toward "federalizing" medicine and inappropriately expanded the program beyond its focus on helping poor children.

"I believe in private medicine, not the federal government running the health care system. I do want Republicans and Democrats to come together to support a bill that focuses on the poorer children," the president said, adding the government's policy should be to help people find private insurance.

The reason government is stepping in is because the private sector is not doing the job.
