Meanwhile, a large number of children who would suffer from this veto are southern children.
TexObBlog shows us that the Iraq War sucks the necessary funding away from worthwhile conservative programs like SCHIP:
[T]he proposed CHIP expansion of $35 billion (over five years) is about three months’ worth of spending in Iraq. The total allocated funds for the war in Iraq is surging past $600 billion, which would have paid for CHIP expansion 20 times over.Yet, the "Compassionate Conservative" is using the veto to pose as spending restraint, while working-class children go without adequate health coverage.
