Let no one say that Democratic Representative from California Pete Stark didn't go down fighting on the SCHIP bill.

"The Republicans are worried that we can't pay for insuring an additional ten million children; they sure don't care about finding two hundred billion dollars to fight the illegal war in Iraq. Where you gonna get that money? You gonna tell us lies, like you’re telling us today? Is that how you're gonna fund the war? You don't have money to fund the war or children—but you're going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the President's amusement."
