Gov. Kathleen Sebelius was among the bipartisan governors who strongly supported Congress’ expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, and now she wants to see the House override President Bush’s veto and give more uninsured children the benefits of taxpayer-funded coverage.
"If it’s good enough for our kids and congressional kids and I think the president’s kids, hopefully it should be good for the low-income children of America who are desperate for this preventive care," Sebelius said in a telephone news conference Thursday with other Democratic leaders from around the nation.
The Senate has enough votes to override the veto. The House could vote Oct. 18.
