Rep. Kissell Misses SCHIP Vote....but for a Good Reason

Today, Rep. Larry Kissell missed the final vote on the SCHIP bill that sent it to the president for his signature. Instead of remaining in Washington to vote on a bill that certainly had sufficient votes to pass, Larry attended the memorial service of a soldier from Ft. Bragg who died in Iraq.

He wasn't protesting the funding of SCHIP. Knowing the bill would pass without his vote, he chose to be with the family of a fallen soldier to offer whatever solace he could.
