The House and Senate will meet in the next week or so and try and reach a funding compromise. Look for $1.00 per cigar tax to come out of this. Bush might sign it. Keep calling and e-mailing your reps!!

Got this from the New Tork Times.

"WASHINGTON, Sept. 25 — The House on Tuesday passed a bill providing health insurance to more than 10 million children, but supporters of the measure fell short of the two-thirds majority they would need to override a veto repeatedly threatened by President Bush."

I don't know how this will pan out, but I'm still holding my breath.
