More SCHIP Sh*t

Sorry for the expletive, but this really is a load of horse manure.

Don Surber has the scoop on this one...a family that the Dems trotted out as the reason why President Bush was a big ol' meanie for not expanding SCHIP (State Children's Health Insurance Program) lives in a 3,000 foot home in a ritzy Baltimore suburb, and their three children attend an expensive private school.

LOL quote from Surber:

Interesting that public schools arent good enough for their kids but public health insurance is.

Be sure to read the comments section; one of the commenters finds out more about the school these kids go to. Very "la de da."

I live in a house that's about half the size of theirs and needs loads of repairs that I can't afford right now and send my kids to public school: but I have health insurance through my work. It takes a lot out of my paycheck -- money that could definitely be spent in a million other ways, but knowing my family is covered if someone is in an accident or becomes seriously ill is important. My husband works as an IT contractor and has no insurance benefits, so we're very lucky that I have a job that does.

Spend your money how you'd like...but don't cry when you don't have enough left for things like health insurance for your family and expect the taxpayers to foot the bill. I'm sick of the whole nanny state mentality that seems to be taking over this nation.

On a tip from Kitty!

One of the main things when a spouse seeks employment is to make sure at least one of you finds a job with health benefits! a lot of people take jobs they hate but do it as a sacrifice for their family. Who wouldn't want to work for themselves? Perhaps this is just what I need to do as well so I can stay home with my son and let you taxpayers pay my way - heck, his daycare is only $325 a week!

these programs should be for single moms and dads (or homes with disabled parents/caregivers/children) who legitemately are trying and need assistance - a double income family w/ both parents physically and mentally able to work should not be hanging on the government teet! these are the people that leave a bad taste in the taxpayers mouths!

I don't mind my taxes helping those who truly need it but for people who insist on sending their kids to a $20K EACH school, no sympathy!

Perhaps they can write to Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins to pay off their mortgage since these two are always spouting off how it is everyone elses responsibility to make sure everyone has affordable housing.

I am sure since Michael Moore believes in private schooling for his daughter he would be more than willing to help this poor family keep their kids in that swanky school!

Whoa, Pam, please do some fact checking on this. This is not a rich family -- they made a combined $45K last year. They are considered lower-middle class in their area, their home cost only $55K in 1991, and the kids' school only costs about $500/year after financial aide. That is, of course, except for the daughter whose brain injury from the crash means that she has to attend a special needs school. That one is expensive, and the state is picking up that bill, because she's, you know, severely disabled now. Fact checking is good. The records are public. Let's not attack a 12-year-old and his family until those records are checked.
