Kerry on SCHIP Override Vote

Senator John Kerry today issued the following statement in response to the House of Representatives vote to override President Bush's veto of bipartisan S-CHIP legislation.

"Today, thirteen Roadblock Republicans joined President Bush to deny health care for 10 million of America's children," said Kerry. "Thirteen Republicans put President Bush's ideological agenda first and put health care for poor children last: behind Halliburton and Blackwater, and behind tax giveaways for the wealthiest Americans. Blocking health care for children isn't compassionate or conservative, and it surely isn't wise. This fight is far from over."
