"Breathtaking, Fundamental Dishonesty"

Here's what the DLC had to say about Bush's veto of SCHIP:

Though it was hardly a surprise, President Bush's veto of bipartisan legislation reauthorizing and improving the State Children's Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP) was still breathtaking in the fundamental dishonesty of the case he made for his action.

Read more here, and then call or email Rep. Jim Marshall, the only Georgia Democrat to vote against this critical legislation, to ask him why he is standing with President Bush instead of standing for Georgia's children. Tell, Rep. Marshall that this can be his moment. Tell him to vote to override the President's veto. If he will lead, others will follow.

Let's fill his email box. What do you say?

You can sign an online petition here.

Or, drop him an email here:E-mail:

I just got a robo-call about Marshall's vote on SCHIP. In this call, which was in no way strident in tone, Congressman Marshall was paired with Bush w/regard to attitude about children's health care. The caller, a soft-spoken woman with a Southern accent, who identified herself as mother of a child who needs medical care, urged me to call Jim Marshall and ask him to put children's health care first. Monday morning, 10:30a.
