As reported by the Houston Chronicle:
After the Senate Finance Committee approved an expansion of the federal Children’s Health Insurance Program to cover nearly 10 million kids, President Bush offered a strange rationale for threatening to veto it.
“People have access to health care in America,” he told an audience in Cleveland. “After all, you just go to an emergency room.”
Strange? How about clueless, uninformed and for the 10 million children he’s talking about…downright cruel and heartless?!?
I have an idea. Let’s not fix any of our problems with homelessness or education. After all, you can just get arrested and go to prison.
