Republicans aligned with the president don’t want to fund the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), but “they sure dont care about finding 200 billion to fight the illegal war in Iraq,” rages Rep. Pete Stark, D-Fremont, chairman of the House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee. “Where are you going to get that money? Are you going to tell us lies like you’re telling us today? Is that how you’re going to fund the war? You don’t have money to fund the war or children. But you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.”
“The truth is that Bush just likes to blow things up in Iraq, in the United States and in Congress.”
Yes, Drudge already has it. And that’s Rep. Ellen Tauscher, D-Alamo, chairing the debate as temporary speaker and reminding Stark at the end that members are not to refer to the President in a personal way.
