Obey Outraged By Bush's Veto

WASHINGTON D.C. -- A veto by President Bush has Representative Dave Obey outraged. The president refuses to sign a health and education spending bill that is a top priority for congressional democrats.. saying it's too expensive and filled with pork. Obey says the veto will result in education, health care and medical research cuts. "And yet he's asking us to spend money like drunken sailors in Iraq so it's just amazing to me because we had 50 republicans that supported this bill, this is a bi-partisan bill." Obey says supporters of the bill will try to override the president's veto. The house needs five more votes to do that.
