Facing veto, Democrats drop plan for vote on child health bill
Congressional Democrats have scrapped plans for another vote on expansion of the Children's Health Insurance Program, after concluding that President Bush would not sign their legislation and that they could not override his likely veto. Bush vetoed two earlier versions of the legislation, which he denounced as a dangerous step toward "government-run healthcare for every American." The fight over CHIP prefigures a larger legislative debate over the future of healthcare and the role of government in providing it.
