President Bush Vetoes Latest Stem Cell Bill

Written by on Thursday, June 21st, 2007 Print This Post Print This Post

Well, it happened again–President Bush vetoed yet another stem cell bill.

MSNBC reported on the President’s action as follows:

This was the third veto of Bush’s presidency. His first occurred last year when he rejected legislation to allow funding of additional lines of embryonic stem cells — a measure that passed over the objections of Republicans then in control. The second legislation he vetoed would have set timetables for U.S. troop withdrawals from Iraq.

According to MSNBC, the Democrats do not currently have enough votes to override the veto; however, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is set to schedule an override vote. 

The President’s action today really should not have come as a surprise to anyone.  I certainly anticipated that this bill would be disposed of by veto when I discovered that a new bill was being considered by Congress.  But apparently Congress thought it was worth its time to send another bill through Congress.  Isn’t it nice to know our taxpayer dollars are being put to good use?
