I just heard that Clinton is saying that Americans should all receive exactly the same healthcare plan that senators and congresspeople receive. Now watch, big pharma will pay for a major smear campaign never seen before against her.

Kucinich is the ONLY Candidate who supports a Universal, Single Payer, Not-For-Profit Healthcare system - Medicare for ALL!

Kids Drag Wagons in Healthcare Protest

USA TODAY's David Jackson reports that President Bush's critics fired more shots this morning at Bush's plans to veto an expansion of a health insurance program for children.

SEIU, the public employees union, sponsored a rally in which children dragged little red wagons to the White House filled with petitions urging Bush to sign the legislation. (Jackson says the event had more reporters than children.)

During a rally at McPherson Square, three blocks from the White House, about 15 children chanted: "care for kids, care for kids."

On Saturday, a 12-year-old delivered the Democrats' response to Bush's radio address.

Bush press secretary Dana Perino said Bush will veto the bill because it expands the program beyond poor children and is a step toward a national, government-run health care program.

"This is a policy difference," Perino said.

Update at 10:43 a.m. ET: Jackson reports that the wagons are Radio Flyers. He says the protesters' chants include "Health care, not warfare!," and "Don't Veto Kids' Health Care!"

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., tells the crowd that members of Congress and the president get free health care, and they should help poor children get doctors. "This is a moral issue," Kennedy says. "It's a fairness issue."
