SCHIP Veto Failed
Cigar Aficionado reports that the House of Representatives once again failed to get enough votes to override President Bush’s veto of the unethical approach to funding SCHIP. The votes came in 260 to 152.
“While it is always possible that Democrats will introduce another SCHIP bill in 2008 to force Republicans to vote on the issue, it now appears likely that the issue will be pushed into 2009,” said the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association at the time.
You better pray that the right person gets into the White House.
