iPol: Candidate Reactions to CHIP Override Vote

Excerpted from this post at iPol

Joe Biden: "I am deeply disappointed first that the President chose to
veto this crucial legislation and second, that the House failed to
override his veto. Every single child in this country should have
health insurance. Instead of making progress toward this goal, the
President and Republicans in the House are turning their backs on 9
million children. Despite this blow, I am committed to continue
working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle until our kids
have the health coverage they need and deserve." Hillary Clinton: "It
is deeply disappointing that a small minority of Republicans in
Congress have put loyalty to this president ahead of healthcare for
millions of children. But we will not give up until a bill becomes
law. I will keep fighting to enact a bipartisan bill that provides
affordable coverage to America's children."
