President Bush just vetoed health care for children. In only his fourth veto ever, he blocked health care coverage for millions of uninsured—and mostly poor—kids.1 The Washington Post is calling this "the biggest domestic policy clash of his presidency."2
Bush is totally out of step with public opinion—even 61% of Republicans support the children's health care bill.3 We need just 15 more Republicans in Congress to break with Bush to override the veto.
I am going to the rally. The new time is in the middle of my workday inconvenient (it was originally at 4:30 pm) but I'm going to nip a bit of extra lunch time and go. As a parent who knows the trials of being unemployed and having no health insurance, I can't afford not to go.
See you there!
