Bush Orders States To Reduce Health Care Coverage For Children

-- by Dave Johnson

The public wants health care. Democrats are trying to bring health care coverage to more people. Republicans understand this will cause more people to appreciate the value of government, so they are trying to block efforts to bring health care coverage to more children. Also, government health care is much more efficient than corporate insurance programs. Which means cronies don't make big profits.

This is what Republicans in government means to your lives.

White House moves to limit health coverage for children,

The Bush administration, continuing its fight to stop states from expanding the popular Children's Health Insurance Program, has adopted new standards that would make it much more difficult for California, New York and other states to extend coverage to children in middle-income families.

... After learning of the new policy, some state officials said Monday that it could cripple their efforts to cover more children and would impose standards that could not be met.
