GOP Candidates Join Bush in Opposing Kid’s Healthcare Bill

October 5, 2007 at 1:49 am 2 comments

The four leading Republicans candidates for president have expressed support for George Bush’s veto of a bill to provide healthcare to uninsured kids through the State Children Health Insurance Program. Rudy Guiliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson said that cost of ensuring that poor kids are able to see a doctor when they need to are too high. Meanwhile, each has expressed strong support for continuing funding for the war in Iraq.

Heartless.

Talk about your misplaced priorities. The Republicans oppose a popular program that provides funding for healthcare for poor kids while supporting funding for a war that has failed to achieve even the minimal benchmarks that the Bush administration has set. Of course, each of them is either provided government funded healthcare or his rich so their will never have a problem of worrying about how to pay a doctor.
