The Reign of Terror Continues

Here is the lead headline in the New York Times: Bush Vetoes Children’s Health Insurance Bill. “Because the Congress has chosen to send me a bill that moves our health care system in the wrong direction, I must veto it,” Bush said.

Of course it's the wrong direction, it's a civilized direction, and probably not a single child works for Haliburton, not a single child is a defense contractor needing to line their pockets, not a single child is an HMO chief with a $30 million compensation package, and they can't even vote. Nine million children in America lack health insurance. “I mean, people have access to health care in America,” said Bush in July. “After all, you just go to an emergency room.”

A little more than sixteen months left in this reign of terror.
