Clobber Them Again On SCHIP Versus Iraq
A day after the White House through Dana Perino said they weren’t concerned about the newest CBO estimates that the Iraq and Afghanistan wars will cost the treasury over $2 trillion dollars, the OMB this morning says that Bush will veto the newest SCHIP bill coming from Congress this week. The reason? Because Congress hasn’t justified why $35 billion more over five years is needed for our nation’s kids.
This, coming from an adminstration that just wasted at least that much in Iraq without any accountability or oversight.
As I have said, the TV commercials write themselves. Run spots in all GOP districts asking why $2 trillion for wars is acceptable, but $35 billion for our kids is not.
