President Vetoes SCHIP expansion program

Think Progress reports on the President's veto of the SCHIP expansion program:

Breaking: Bush vetoes children’s health insurance.

President Bush’s veto of an SCHIP expansion was only the fourth veto of his presidency. AP reports that the White House “sought as little attention as possible, with the president wielding his veto behind closed doors without any fanfare or news coverage.” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said that they have not yet scheduled a date for an override vote, but it could be “next week” or “the week after.”
