House Passes CHIP Bill - But Without Enough Votes To Override Expected Veto

The New York Times reports that the House passed the compromise Children's Health Insurance Plan (CHIP) bill yesterday.  (Prior posts here).  The bill passed by a vote of 265 to 159 - short of the 2/3s majority needed to override President Bush's expected veto.  The Senate is expected to vote on the bill later this week.
