In his weekly radio address, President Bush called Democrats "irresponsible" for seeking to expand children's health insurance for low income families. Bush has vowed to veto the bill despite significant bipartisan support. Link. "You see, it's all political," said Bush. "Them Democrats pass the easy stuff, the stuff everybody wants like health care for children. Then I have to be the responsible adult. You see, we don't have more money for these welfare programs like student aid and health care. We're at war people. If it doesn't go to the troops, we don't need it. Understand Nancy?" The President was apparently referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
We at Conspiracy Theory Central applaud the President for his courage in standing against give-aways to lazy kids unable to pick themselves up by their boot straps and get their own health insurance. But maybe the answer is repealing the child labor laws so these adolescent shirkers can get off their butts and work for a living? And we are galled that the Republicans have gotten in bed with the Democrats on this one. Our democracy shall grind to a halt if these people do not immediately resume hacking at each other's throats.
