Free Health Care for All!

The House voted today to expand SCHIP, which will dramatically expand the government-run health care program originally designed for children below the poverty level. Now, children up to the age of 25 and up to several times the poverty level can enjoy the benefits of free health care.

The only drawback of course, is that we the taxpayers have to pay for it. And approximately 2,4 million who currently pay for their own private health care can cancel their payments because the government is now giving it to them for free. Hey, it's not as bad as buying their houses for them as well, which we will be doing soon enough!
