Assuming that all uninsured sick children have the same kind of trust fund that Georgie had, Bush explains his rationale for denying health care and cutting off funding to the CHIP program.
"I support the initial intent of the program," Bush said in an interview with The Washington Post after a factory tour and a discussion on health care with small-business owners in Landover. "My concern is that when you expand eligibility . . . you're really beginning to open up an avenue for people to switch from private insurance to the government."
Bravely misunderstanding the arguments of communist sympathizers like Sen. Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Hatch (R-Utah), Bush continues to protect the delicate market system from the freeloading terror of poor kids with diseases.
