Weekend Watchdog

Bill Scher

Every Friday in our Weekend Watchdog feature, we post suggested questions for scheduled Sunday guests. You can add your own questions in the comment thread. We’ll also include contact information for the shows, so we can let them know what their viewers want asked.

And on Sunday at 4 PM ET, tune in to Air America Radio’s “Seder on Sundays” program, where I’ll offer the Weekend Watchdog Wrap-Up.

For Trent Lott (Fox News Sunday): You recently said on CNN that:

[The State Children's Health Insurance Program has] been a successful program [but] some governors around the country … have been adding adults and moving the income level up higher and higher…

…No matter what might be started with good intentions, Democrats will find a way to explode the costs, particularly if it means Uncle Sam will run the program.

But isn’t one of the reasons that program has been successful is state governments have the flexibility to meet the needs of their populations, while you want the federal government to impose restrictions on states that will leave more kids uninsured?
