WASHINGTON, May 3 (Reuters) US President George W Bush today said he would veto an emergency spending bill if Congress loaded it with more than the 92.2 billion dollars plus bird flu costs.
''The Congress needs to hear me loud and clear. If they spend more than 92.2 (billion) dollars plus pandemic flu emergency funds, I will veto the bill,'' Bush said. ''It's important for there to be fiscal discipline in Washington DC if we want to keep this economy strong.'' REUTERS SI PC2138
