“If the president vetoes this bill, he will be vetoing health care for almost 4 million children, and he will be putting ideology — not children — first,” Sen. Hillary Clinton

“This is a perfect example of the type of partisan politics that goes on in Washington all the time,” he told CNN. “It’s not about trying to take care of the children; it’s about how can we get a political advantage.”

Lott added, “Do you really believe Republicans don’t want to help poor, low-income children?”
