SCHIP is dead and I don't feel so good myself
Our daughter, Cassie is doing well. She was a fairy princess for Halloween. Did anyone out there know that Halloween was originally New Year's Eve on the Celtic calendar? Using Wednesday as a marker, I would hope that we could all focus on getting the country back in the right direction. Noah, what in the heck are you talking about. Yeah, I know this blog is a bit all over the place. But, I figure if it is a new year we can make a resolution to start improving the country.
Sure SCHIP is not going anywhere, but its funding technically runs out in mid-November. Could someone please tell me why the President is so against funding healthcare for children. Would it be the country's 1st foray into government run health care? I don't think so. There is Government run health care through Medicare, and Medicaid.
Maybe, SCHIP is too expensive and Congress has not spelled out a way to pay for this program. That isn't exactly true. The program would be fully funded by cigarette taxes.
Maybe, George W. Bush is just having a goold old Ghoulish laugh at the condition in which he is leaving this country and its people.
Remember this is all part of his plan "Every Child Left Behind".
