Bushit: "Go Play In The Street, Kid"
Preznit Dumbya has announced that he plans to veto the extension of the child health insurance bill, which has received broad bi-partisan support in Congress. The bill would add another 4 million low income children to the 6.6 million children already participating over a five year period. Apparently the killer (literally for some children) for Chimpy is that the insurance for the additional children would be paid for from additional cigarette taxes, and we know how much he loves the Tobacco lobby's money, and most low income people aren't Rethuglican anyway.
If Dumbya doesn't sign the bill, 15 states will run out of money by the end of the month. And there is no way around the fact that some poor children will die as a result.
