Mr. Fish

Mad in America

What do we have now? An anti-war movement that is so gutless and so savagely unimaginative that it has proved itself to be too lazy, even too cowardly, to face down the very disease of oligarchy that it had concocted itself to cure.

Bachmann Alarmed About ‘Re-Education Camps’ for America’s Kids

Rep. Michele Bachmann is sounding the alarm to radio-show host/wingnut Sue Jeffers about the scary government-controlled future that will surely result if Barack Obama has his way with us—starting with “mandatory” re-education camps for American children. And don’t even get her started on SCHIP.

Learning From Clinton’s Mistakes

One of the clearest signals President-elect Barack Obama has sent is his determination to learn from the Clinton years, and particularly from the former president’s failures on health care.

Dems Blow Override, Vow to Keep On Fighting

House Democrats managed to pick up a few more votes for the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, but not enough to override the president’s veto. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised to keep fighting for the overwhelmingly popular program: “In the next two weeks we will send the president another bill that insures coverage for 10 million children.”

Congressman Blasts Bush for Sinking SCHIP

After the House failed to override Bush’s veto of the SCHIP children’s health care renewal bill on Thursday, Rep. Pete Stark berated the administration and the bill’s opponents.  In light of their attitude, he questioned whether the nation’s kids would “grow old enough for you to send [them] to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.”

Our Offspring Fontanel

Oooh. He’s clever. And obviously knows exactly what he’s doing. This is all a setup, people. Has to be. Yes, I’m talking about George Bush’s veto of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. Who but a total stoned horned ogre would do that? Maybe an ogre with something up his sleeve, eh?

How Did a 12-Year-Old Become No. 1 Enemy of Conservatives?

Conservatives claim to be in favor of stable families, small businesses, hard work, private schools, investment and homeownership. So why in the world are so many on the right attacking the family of Graeme Frost?

‘Daily Show’:  Bush as Cartoon Villain

Yeah, so it sounded like a great idea—raise taxes on cigarettes in order to fund children’s health care initiatives—but apparently President Bush didn’t think so, as he hit Congress’ proposed SCHIP reauthorization bill with the veto stick on Wednesday.  Thankfully, we have Jon Stewart to help us vent our collective frustration through the magic of satire.

Bush Gets Tightfisted With Sick Kids

To say that George W. Bush spends money like a drunken sailor is to insult every gin-soaked patron of every dockside dive in every dubious port of call.

Bush Vetoes Children’s Health Care Bill

President Bush may not have done his party any favor in coming elections by exercising his veto privilege—the fourth time he’s done so—to deep-six a bipartisan bill passed by Congress that would have renewed the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Child Insurance Gains, but a Veto Won’t Be Overridden

The House has passed an expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program but failed to win enough votes to override President Bush’s promised veto. Still, SCHIP has overwhelming public support, and Democrats welcomed the opportunity to force Bush and his congressional allies to take a stand against poor children.

Bush Goes Down With the SCHIP

This week’s showdown over children’s health insurance is the first skirmish in the new battle for universal health coverage. It is also the first confrontation between the president and Congress fought out almost entirely on terms set by the new Democratic majority.

Democrats to Bush: Veto This!

Defying President Bush’s promise to veto the bill, House Democrats approved a broad expansion of the popular SCHIP program that would offer healthcare coverage to millions more poor children. The Senate version appears likely to pass, which would force Bush to make good on his vow and in the process deny poor children fiscally responsible healthcare.
