Following up on an earlier item, the president’s decision to veto a bipartisan bill to expand the State Children’s Health Insurance Program is scandalous, but it’s not without a foundation. Bush didn’t just reject the expansion out of some kind of craven disgust for children’s health; he’s offered specific policy rationales for rejecting the legislation.

The problem, of course, is that these rationales happen to be spectacularly wrong.

What's worse than undermining healthcare for kids for no reason? Undermining healthcare for kids for demonstrably false reasons.
