The Score is in –
-0- President George W. Bush
-1- People of the United States of America
After seven years in office Congress finally said "NO" to President Bush and they said it loud and clear; with the House overriding the veto of H.R. 1495, Water Resources Development Act of 2007, with a vote of 361-54 and the Senate following with a 79-14 vote.
Following are the names of the 34 Senate Republicans that stood up for what was right and and voted against the Presidents veto.
