From THE WASHINGTON POST Thursday, 19 July 2007 ~ Christopher lee
President Bush yesterday rejected entreaties by his Republican allies that he compromise with Democrats on legislation to renew a popular program that provides health coverage to poor children, saying that expanding the program would enlarge the role of the federal government at the expense of private insurance.
The president said he objects on philosophical grounds (as if) to a bipartisan Senate proposal to boost the State Children’s Health Insurance Program by $35 billion over five years. Bush has proposed $5 billion in increased funding and has threatened to veto the Senate compromise and a more costly expansion being contemplated in the House.
“I support the initial intent of the program,” Bush said in an interview with The Washington Post after a factory tour and a discussion on health care with small-business owners in Landover. “My concern is that when you expand eligibility . . . you’re really beginning to open up an avenue for people to switch from private insurance to the government.”

How much more evidence do we need before people wake up to the fact that these bastards are the enemy? How much more bold-faced do they need to be about their evil intentions?
The GOP is about control, greed, malfeseance, self interest and fear. Nothing more. And it’s becoming clearer every day. They don’t even try to hide their villainy any more. How could anyone …ANYONE think that taking away health benefits for fuck’s sake… HEALTH BENEFITS FROM CHILDREN to safeguard the profits of the fucking INSURANCE COMPANIES is not totally, insanely evil?
What mental distortion are we witnessing? Where is the fucking outrage? Outrage from the media? From the depraved, misbegotten religious organizations?
Because they are totally on board with this. The big pharma/big insurance owns the media.
Total whacked evil owns the religious organizations and their legions of shithead sheeple.
Sometimes I think I went to bed in 1999 and woke up in an evil, alternate universe from the shithead galaxy.
