The U.S. House needed 286 votes to override President Bush’s veto of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program expansion bill.
Two of Washington’s staunchest conservatives, Rep. Dave Reichert (R-8, Bellevue) and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Eastern Washington), voted to override President Bush.
Rep. Doc Hastings (R-4, Central Washington) voted No on overriding Bush.
We’re calling the state to get a sense of the number of uninsured children in Rep. Hastings’s central Washington district.
