In a move that’s been expected for weeks, President Bush has threatened to veto a bill that would expand healthcare coverage for children. The child healthcare program is set to expire September 30 and Congress will most likely vote to renew it, setting a showdown with the President. The program covers children, many of whom would not have access to healthcare without it. Bush has argued that the renewal would go beyond the original intent of the bill. However, it seems to me that its a matter of common sense and good public policy to provide healthcare for as many of our children as possible. Bush has called himself a compassionate conservative but where’s the compassion in denying healthcare to children?
