SCHIP Veto Override Fails Again

The Gavel reports that the House Republicans "have again narrowly sustained President Bush’s veto, with a vote of 260 in favor of passage and 152 against, (15 votes short) despite the veto-proof margin in the Senate."  The Gavel also has a handy list of newspaper editorials nationwide that urged Congress to override President Bush's veto. 

The Daily Kos blog's DemFromCt reports on what might be the likely political fall-out for the two parties from the SCHIP veto.  It also provides a rather eye-opening review of where both sides stand on SCHIP and health programs provided by the federal government.
