Bush Hates The Poor and Working Class

Wow. The children's health care bill to continue SCHIP programs and expand them to cover 4 million more uninsured children got the big veto from Dubya yesterday. He was concerned that the expansion of the program moved the focus away from poor families and expanded coverage to middle class families, and implied that the country was moving toward federally managed health care.
Um, Georgie, you may not believe this but there are lots of "middle class" families (and singles) who can't afford private insurance when their employer doesn't offer it. And, by the way, what is middle class? Is it everything between the ridiculous "poverty line" and $150K in annual income? Yes, it is true after all that everyone in the "middle class" is living the big american dream. Even though SCHIP covers families at up to 3x the poverty line, depending on the size of the family, these folks still struggle to live the american dream.
Oh, and aren't just the funds managed at the state level with no control over the actual delivery of service? Stupid bastard.

He's a clueless dink. Folks at the poverty level are deciding which cardboard box to sleep in. Lower middle class folks are foregoing dental work and getting emergency medical care only. Moving toward national health care?? I say BOUT TIME!

If only all those children could have remained fetuses, or even better, zygotes. That would make them something to this administration. It's only when they come out that they cease to matter. Silly fetuses, growing to term...when will they learn?
