WASHINGTON, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean issued the following statement in response to President Bush sending Congress a request for an additional $46 billion in war spending, for a total of $196 billion, while he vetoed a bill to give health care coverage to 10 million of America's low income children:
"President Bush wants a blank check from Congress to fund his war of choice in Iraq but has no problem denying health care coverage to millions of low income children in our country. Republicans' priorities are clearly not America's priorities. Democrats are working to end the war in Iraq and fighting for America's families, but Bush Republicans are obstructing this effort every step of the way. It's time to put a Democrat back in the White House to get our country back on track."
