U.S. Senator Michael D. Enzi,(R-Wy), one of the many reactionary right-wing GOP senators who serve in the United States Senate is trying to demonize the children's health care bill that passed yesterday in the United States Senate by a 67-29 vote. The senator said the following: "We shouldn't be laying the foundation for Castro-style health care."
Senator you are very ill informed. The fact of the matter is that ALL CHILDREN in Cuba have an excellent health care system. That is one of the great achievements of the Cuban Revolution. You and your party are so cheap and so greedy, that you would like to keep nine million American children without the proper health insurance.
George W. Bush has promised to veto the SCHIPS Health care bill. There are enough votes in the U.S. Senate to override his veto, but proponents of the bill are 25 votes short in the House to override the "Devil in Chief".
Respected Republican Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa said: “This bill is not socialized medicine. Screaming ‘socialized medicine’ is like shouting ‘fire’ in a crowded theater. It is intended to cause hysteria that diverts people from reading the bill, looking at the facts.”
