WASHINGTON (CNN) -- House Republicans are fuming over Democrats' decision to hold the next vote on the State Children's Health Insurance Program on Thursday -- when many Republicans will be in California as President Bush tours areas hit by wildfires.
"Five to seven members are going, all of whom would be 'no' votes, and [Democrats] know it," House Republican Whip Roy Blunt told CNN. "This is clearly designed to minimize the Republican opposition to this bill."
President Bush vetoed the proposed five-year expansion and $35 billion spending increase for SCHIP on October 3.
How anybody can see the whiny little punks that make up the GOP as anything more than spoiled children is beyond me.
They all asking Pelosi to postpone the vote as "fellow Californians."
It's not like California somehow needs the pompous Republican windbags to somehow recover.
I'd take it a step further and introduce anything else that looked like it might be a close vote. This is how they ran the place for six years - no comity and no mercy for these weasels.
