Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.

Q. Who is politicizing the SCHIP vote?

A. Nancy Boyda

After the President's veto was sustainec, Kansas Democratic Rep. Nancy Boyda called it a “morally bankrupt vote.”

“To my mind, every vote in Congress makes a moral statement. … It told working families that a radical minority would rather score political points than take care of children’s health,” Boyda said. Boyda said Congress needs “to get past the partisan shouting match that doomed” the vote. “Nobody in Kansas really cares whether Republicans or Democrats score more political points,” she said. “They just care whether their kids can see a doctor."

Fact 1 - SCHIP is still ongoing. No children are currently being denied health care.

Fact 2 - Democrats have REFUSED to negotiate with Republicans on the program.

Boyda is simply falling in line with her liberal friends in Congress . . . if you haven't seen Rep. Pete Starks' comments saying President Bush is amused by our soldier's dying in Iraq and that he'd rather see that than fund SCHIP:

"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. This bill would provide healthcare for 10 million children and unlike the President's own kids, these children can't see a doctor or receive necessary care. [...]"

And Boyda's reward, Nancy Pelosi is coming to do a fundraiser for her . . . after giving her $10,000 last month and getting Murtha to give her $5,000. Given Pelosi's Congress having about a 17% approval rating, I wouldn't think this is the smartest choice . . . but I've never accused Boyda of being smart.

dems actually did compromise with them, that's why it got BIPARTISAN support. They just decided to draw the line.

I'm sorely disappointed that the veto was sustained.

It drew BIPARTISAN support because some moderate Republicans were too afraid to vote against it. The Democrats didn't negotiate with the Republicans.
