Prospects for the S-CHIP Veto Override

From the Washington Post Capitol Briefing blog

The Senate has enough votes (67) to override, so it’s all up to the House. The Democrats need 15-20 more votes, either by convincing Republicans to vote against their party and President’s wishes, or by convincing the 8 Democrats who voted against the bill to begin with.

Among those Democrats? Dennis Kucinich. Why? Because it denies coverage to children of legal immigrants. Interesting stand. While I respect it, I do hope that if the override came down to the wire and his vote was needed, he would change his mind.
