Date:10/18/2007

WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Following is a statement from Greg Tarpinian, Executive Director of Change to Win, on the House's failure to override President Bush's veto of SCHIP.

"Change to Win applauds the efforts of the Congressional Democrats and some courageous Republicans to override President Bush's veto of legislation that would provide health care to children whose parents cannot afford it.

"In failing to approve SCHIP, President Bush and his Republican allies in Congress have callously placed ideology over the health and well-being of millions of children. Those members of Congress who voted to deny health coverage to poor children will face another override vote next November, except this time working families will have the vote."
