A vote against SCHIP, a good vote?

 Dennis Kucinich on his vote against SCHIP:

“I cannot support legislation which extends health coverage to some children while openly denying it to other children,” Kucinich said. “This legislation is woefully inadequate: and I will not support it.

“Legal immigrant children deserve the same quality health care as other children receive. It is Congress’ responsibility to address the main difficulties that prevent legal immigrant children from gaining access to health care. Today, we did exactly the opposite. “

Why that was a good vote on SCHIP. What do you think?
