It was Bush’s third veto of the year. He has yet to be overridden, although Democrats say they will succeed in doing so on a water projects bill that will soon go to the White House. “We won this round,” said White House press secretary Dana Perino. Democrats cited public opinion polls that showed overwhelming support for a health-care expansion, and they predicted some Republicans would pay a heavy price for sticking with Bush. At a cost of $35 billion over five years, the measure would have added nearly 4 million uninsured children to the insurance program. It provides coverage for those who are not poor enough to qualify for Medicaid, but whose families can’t afford private care.

That’s nonnegotiable,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, said. “You either stand with our children or you stand against them,” said Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C. “There is no in between.” Critics said the bill was a step toward socialized medicine, that too many adults benefited and that despite a prohibition, it would allow children of illegal immigrants to gain coverage. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
