Dean: President Bush Has Turned His Back on the American People

WASHINGTON, June 20, 2007 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean issued the following statement today after President Bush once again put politics ahead of science by vetoing the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007.

The legislation, providing federal funding for life-saving embryonic stem cell research, has the overwhelming support of the American people and passed both the House and Senate with bipartisan support. A recent USA Today/Gallup poll showed that 64% of Americans believed President Bush should not veto the bill. []:

"President Bush's veto of life-saving stem cell research is just another example of how out of touch he is with the American people," Dean said. "Bush once again put political posturing ahead of sound science, turning his back on the overwhelming majority of Americans who support stem cell research and the 100 million Americans suffering from debilitating diseases who could benefit from this life-saving science. Republicans should stand up to this President and instead stand with the American people by overriding his veto. We absolutely must elect a Democratic President in 2008 to provide the change in direction that the American people have demanded."
