Bush Has Doubled the number of neighborhood health care centers

As promised in his 2000 presidential campaign Bush added over 1200 neighborhood health care centers. Via NY Times:

In Mr. Bush’s first year in office, he proposed to open or expand 1,200 clinics over five years (mission accomplished) and to double the number of patients served (the increase has ended up closer to 60 percent). With the health centers now serving more than 16 million patients at 7,354 sites, the expansion has been the largest since the program’s origins in President Lyndon B. Johnson’s war on poverty, federal officials said.

With President Bush also saving hundreds 0f thousands of lives by boosting our support for AIDS care and prevention in Africa it's apparent that GWB is a compassionate man.
