Bush women run afoul of GOP orthodoxy


Mon Jun 14, 2:08 pm ET
She may have been born into a Republican family, but Barbara Bush, the 28-year-old daughter of former President George W. Bush, sounded more like a Democrat this weekend during an interview with Fox News. When "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace asked her whether she supports President Obama's health care reform plan, she responded: "I guess I'm glad the bill was passed." You can watch the exchange here (video courtesy of Fox News):





"Why do, basically, people with money have good health care and why do people who live on lower salaries not have good health care?" she said. "Health should be a right for everyone." She is president of the Global Health Corps, an organization that champions global health equity.

No Republican in Congress voted for Obama's health care legislation.

Barbara Bush's comments come just weeks after her mother, former First Lady Laura Bush, professed views that departed sharply from the Republican majority opinion. During a Fox News interview, Laura Bush was asked to comment on Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court.



"I think it's great," she responded. "I'm really glad that there will be three [women] if she's confirmed. I like to have women on the Supreme Court." And in an interview with CNN's Larry King last month, she came out in favor of abortion rights and gay marriage.

That makes at least two Bushes who probably won't be invited to headline Republican campaign rallies anytime soon.

I saw that earlier....but didn't have the heart to post it.
I mean....when your family publicly turns agin you....and on an issue that is at the heart of their pogram.
having no health insurance for Americas poor is the modern Republicans alternative to the Nazi solution....a means to solve the impending SS funds problem.

You have to wonder how many more Republican wives are saddled with assholes that they are forced to go along with.

That article gave me hope in America.

Good for her. It is nice to see that she can speak her mind without fearing what people might say about her. While I disagree with her comments it was good to read about them.
