From Thursday's show, Jon Stewart looks at the logic-- or lack thereof -- behind Bush's veto of SCHIP.

No healthcare for poor kids? You know, I thought something like that was only done by cartoon villains. You're slowly going from Nixon to Mr. Burns.

[snip]

BUSH: ...I believe in private medicine, not the federal government running the healthcare system...

STEWART: Yes, I don't think there's an uninsured kid out there who wants to be suckered into some slippery slope socialized medicine scheme. These kids don't want the government telling them what they can or cannot die from. It's just wrong.
