Boyda encourages SCHIP veto override

Reported by Topeka TV station WIBW last night, Congresswoman Nancy Boyda will vote to override the president's veto of the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), and encourages her colleagues in the House to follow her lead.

Boyda joins Kansas Congressman Dennis Moore (D) and Senator Pat Roberts (R) in committing to override President Bush's irresponsible veto of a program that provides health insurance to millions of poor children.

We can only hope Representatives Jerry Moran (R) and Todd Tiahrt (R) and Senator Sam Brownback (R) will listen to their Kansas colleagues and vote to do the right thing as well.
