Knollenberg Helps Bush Sustain Veto of Health and Human Services Bill

George Bush sends a big thank you to Joe Knollenberg, helping him save face at the expense of our nation's workers, veterans and children. I guess Joe decided, our country - and Michigan - didn't need the critical funding that bill would have provided for these domestic programs provided for in H.R. 3043
  • $3.4 billion for state unemployment insurance and employment services
  • $340 million to strengthen mine safety protections
  • $183 million to enforce wage and hour laws
  • $37 billion for school districts across America
  • $16.4 billion to lower the costs of student loans
  • $2 billion for affordable, high-quality child care for low-income families
  • $7 billion for Head Start programs
  • $2.2 billion for community health centers
