List of House and Senate Republicans who voted with George W. Bush Medicare Veto

The issue made more news than normal because Senator Edward Kennedy who was recently operated on for a malignant brain tumor saw it as so important he came out of seclusion to the Senate Chamber to vote against George W. Bush's veto of the Medicare bill.

The issue is not that complicated. The recent reduction in Medicare funding of 10% has caused doctors to stop taking new patients under the Medicare plan, leaving more and more of our senior citizens with no health insurance and little recourse other than they die while wealthy Republicans live. This is a very very REPUBLICAN issue, an example of that we all have suffered for a generation under their cold callous fascist boot. All Democrats voted to override the veto, only Republicans voted against our senior citizens.

This is much like the Senator Phil Gramm foo-pah last week telling us that our economic woes are all in our head. John McCain was about the only Republican to disagree, only because he is in a tight race. All conservative (Republican) pundits and most Republicans in office agreed with Gramm.

Both Texas Senators, Hutchinson and Cornyn did vote to override the President's veto. Cornyn is up for re-election and Hutchinson is on her way to the Governors Mansion. Which by the way, burned down recently.
