Veto Risk Seen in Compromise on Child Health
Senate and House negotiators said Sunday that they had agreed on a framework for a compromise bill that would provide health insurance to four million uninsured children while relaxing some of the limits on eligibility imposed by the Bush administration.

The compromise, which resembles a bill passed by the Senate with bipartisan support, sets the stage for a battle with President Bush, who has denounced similar legislation as a step “down the path to government-run health care for every American.”

I highly encourage the administration to keep using this kind of language. Back when they had some mojo, they would have amped it up to something like, "those commies want to force you to see the collective doctors at the methadone clinic downtown!" But the mojo is gone, and they are practically using the Dems rhetoric. "Health care for every American."

Say. Not a bad idea! What's that - you're going to veto that? Hmm, maybe someone somewhere will vote Republican again. In 20 years or so.
