    a major price for vetoing this bipartisan bill. And a lot of Senators are going to be under heavy pressure to vote to override that veto. If they don't they can go down with Bush.

    It's not like the GOP is not in deep enough trouble already is it?

      He's not even up for re-election.  

      •  I think it could (0+ / 0-)

        cost him in more lost popular support for the rest of his term. Even the GOP faithful have a soft spot for children.

        And as far as his legacy goes children's health needs trumps fake budget concerns especially when he is more that willing to give tax breaks to people who don't really need it. He takes from the poor and gives to the rich. History will not reflect kindly on that.
