Obama Keeps Promise On SCHIP
President Barack Obama fulfills his promise to expand coverage of SCHIP. The State Children's Health Insurance Program pays for the health care of poor children. President George W. Bush twice vetoed SCHIP expansion. Obama sign SCHIP into law today.
By doing so, the new president said, "we fulfill one of the highest responsibilities that we have: to ensure the health and well-being of our nation's children. It's a responsibility that's only grown more urgent as our economic crisis deepens, with health care costs that have exploded, and millions of working families are unable to afford health insurance."
SCHIP hater Michelle Malkin made a blacklist of Republicans that voted for SCHIP. Did it occur to Malkin that GOP candidates don't want to run against children's health care? With apologies to On-my-soap-box and alaskangrizzly, Malkin commenters aren't the entire electorate.
