One more time...will it be vetoed again? BD
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - After waiting a month, Democratic leaders in Congress said on Friday they would formally send a bill expanding a popular children's health-care program to the White House despite a veto threat.
The bill would provide health insurance to about 10 million children in low-income families unable to afford private insurance but who earn too much to qualify for the federal Medicaid program for the poor. It would raise taxes on cigarettes and other tobacco taxes to pay for the aid.
