Bush's Vile Healthcare Veto: Suffer Little Children?

We wonder what Jesus would do, George?

Actually that's not true. We don't wonder at all.

The truth is that we - and everyone else on this earth with even one single ounce of compassion - already sodding know - for certain.

He'd lay you bare as the liar are. He'd say you're obscenely selfish. He'd denounce you as despised. He'd announce he never knew you. He'd proclaim you a false prophet. He'd expose you to the whole world as a wolf in sheep's clothing.

And that's not all he'd do. Believe us.

Call yourself a Christian, Mr Bush? Come off it, you cretinous counterfeit creep.

You're a phony. You're a fake. You're a snake-oil salesman. You're a shyster and
a schmuck -- and it shows.

If compassion were crap you'd be constipated -- chronically.

Completely;constantly;terminally;period; you pompous, pathetic posturing prick.

Bush vetoes child health insurance plan


Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - President Bush, in a confrontation with Congress, on Wednesday vetoed a bipartisan bill that would have dramatically expanded children's health insurance.

The White House sought as little attention as possible, with the president wielding his veto behind closed doors without any fanfare or news coverage.

The Democrats who control Congress, with significant support from Republicans, passed the legislation to add $35 billion over five years to allow an additional 4 million children into the program. It would be funded by raising the federal cigarette tax by 61 cents to $1 per pack.

The president argued that the Democratic bill was too costly ...
Too costly for who?


Your posh private insurer prigs and big pharma 'fat cat' friends?

One last question, you louse.

If a national health insurance service is good enough for that lovely lady's people -- then why not for your own?

Suffer the little children?

Shit. Don't seriously start us.

And from Rep. Louise Slaughter at

"Perhaps the most stunning fact is that the entire cost of the SCHIP(State Children's Health Insurance Program) to insure 10 million American children is equivalent to the price of about 41 days of the president's War in Iraq. 41 days in Iraq. There has perhaps never been a more stark contrast between the president's priorities.
Now that the president has chosen to ignore the 10 million reasons to support SCHIP, the battle returns to Congress where I will be leading the fight to override the president's veto because the health of millions of children the president deems unimportant are literally on the line."

Just when you think things can't get any worse......they get worse!

I've no words..... Yours are just right, Richard.

Remind me, someone. What was that in The Holy Bible about harming " .. one hair on their heads" and something like ".. it would be better for him if a stone were tied around his neck" and did it also say something about being ".. cast into the sea"?

Why are the sick, dispossed and poor hated so much in America ~~ by AMERICANS?! And not just by the very wealthiest of Americans?

It's nothing less than a 'snob' ~~ thing isn't it?

There are so many [so called] middle class Americans who should be ashamed of themselves.

Believe me I am NOT defending George, but I'll bet you this is the scenario:

George gets a phone call from the Chairman of a midsized corporate conglomerate that goes something like this:

"George, you know that tobacco tax revenue bill you've got pending on your desk...."

"Hmmm. Oh, do you mean that bill that provides some medical insurance coverage for kids? Yeah. I haven't signed it yet. Seemed like the right thing to do for the kids."

"Well, George, we still have a tobacco division that's still profitable. In fact we hold most of the remaining brands. Our customers are the hard-core smokers. They won't be able to handle a substantial increase in the retail price. They are already spending about as much on cigarets as they are on food.

"Our distributors can't absorb much of that increase either, not to mention the the small retail stores who count on cigaret sales to bring in regular customers who almost always buy a few other things.

"That's an awful lot of people that you will be hurting if you sign that bill.

"The worst thing of all is, those smokers are going to switch over to chewing tobacco or marijuana if they can't afford regular cigarets. Or they might quit tobacco altogether.

"There's no way we can include a Marijuana division in our corporate model ... our stockholders would rebel. The publicity would kill us. And the Religious folks would have a field day.

"Chewing tobacco has not worked out very well in corporate hands either. Just too many other ways people can get both marijuana and chew.

"C'mon, George, you've done a lot of favors for the really big boys: BIG OIL, BIG PHARMA, BIG INSURERS, BIG MILITARY CONTRACTORS .... How's about remembering your commitment to small business? You know, the little guys?

"Don't sign that bill. In fact, it's best if you just Veto it."

George: "Gee, I hadn't thought about all of that. Thanks. Sure, I will veto that bill. No problem."
