Statement by Senator Mark Pryor On President Bush's Veto of Children's Health Care Bill
I am very concerned that the President Bush's veto today signals that he is out of touch with the needs of working Arkansans. Congress passed a critical bill that ensures millions of parents can bring sick children to the doctor and get them the care and medicine necessary for a healthier future. I am committed to working with Senators on both sides of the aisle to override the President's veto. Our children's future should be this nation's top priority. Today, the President has shown their health is not a priority for him.
