So, let me see if I have this straight.
SCHIP is a program that helps provide healthcare for poor, sick children. An expansion of SCHIP, to heal more poor, sick children was passed by Congress, funding it, partially, with a tax on cigarettes. The idea there is that it would discourage smoking. Fewer smokers. Fewer poor sick children.
But, as we know, Shrub would have no part of that. His veto made his brown and dusty heart just wheeze with glee.
When a 12-year old child spoke up against that – or, I should say, when the Dems allowed a child to speak… what did the Repugs do?
The smeared him. The smeared the child and the Democrats who allowed him to speak.
Because that’s what has become of the Repugs. They’re the party that attacks children and refuses them health care.
