Joe to Michigan's Children: DROP DEAD!
I know that sounds cruel, but it's the truth. Joe Knollenberg and George W. Bush are on the same page when it comes to supplying affordable health care to America's children. $35 billion, the cost of 4.5 months of the war in Iraq is what it would cost to expand the State Children's Health Insurance Program, as the Senate overwhelmingly voted to approve and the House also approved, although not by a veto-proof majority. Joe Knollenberg was one of the Republicans that voted with President Bush, like he does 94% of the time and against expanding this extremely successful program. I hope you're proud of yourself Congressman Knollenberg. The children of Michigan were counting on you and you let them down. So what's new?
