Veto Risk Seen in Compromise on SCHIP
Senate and House negotiators said Sunday that they had agreed on a framework for a compromise bill that would provide health insurance to four million uninsured children while relaxing some of the limits on eligibility imposed by the Bush administration.
The compromise, which resembles a bill passed by the Senate with bipartisan support, sets the stage for a battle with President Bush . . . .
Republicans will come under political pressure to support the compromise. But if the president vetoes it, he will probably have enough votes in the House to sustain his veto, Republicans say.
