Conservative SCHIP Plan Going Ka-Bluey

Bill Scher

Conservatives spent their August recess trying to explain (using copious misinformation) how they could be against covering more kids with health insurance.

It doesn’t seem to have gone well, with polls and editorials squarely in support of congressional bills expanding the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.

So now it’s desperation time. Heritage Foundation’s Robert Bluey, in a Town Hall column, instructs his fellow conservatives that Democrats “just might be in the mood to compromise to avoid a veto” — ignoring that the Senate bill already is a bipartisan compromise and passed by a veto-proof margin.
