An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Under the Democratsâ€™ SCHIP proposal, adults without children will be covered through FY 2009, and funding will be available to enroll new parents until the end of FY 2012.
President Bushâ€™s plan is a reasonable expansion of SCHIP that focuses on covering poor children first. The Democratsâ€™ plan to keep adults in the program is one more sign that they plan to use SCHIP as the first step toward government-run healthcare.
So, why are these people pushing so hard to provide healthcare for NOT children? Well, votes of course. Can’t be any other explanation…….other than ‘wealth redistribution’.
