Bush's first veto

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

After over five years of helming the most profligate administration in history, Dubya has finally vetoed a spending bill. It wasn’t political pork, or wasteful weapons programs; it was only scientific research funding, so it won’t have any adverse consequences.

Bush stated that he believes in the “inherent dignity and matchless value” of each “unique human life.” Of course, this only holds true as long as they’re not living in Iraq, or on death row, or suffering from a disease that might benefit from scientific research such as diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, or MS.

I’m not usually given to quoting polls, but 64% of Americans support federal funding of research using embryonic stem cells.

The remaining 36% are Bush’s base.
