NEJM Blasts Bush on S-CHIP Stance

In the latest edition of the New England Journal of Medicine, Sara Rosenbaum writes a scathing article detailing why Bush's opposition to S-CHIP (State Children's Health Insurance Program) isn't based on economics, but rather Bush's right-wing dogmas.

This is just another example of the administration putting the screws to those who aren't in their party. How can you withhold care to millions of children because you're afraid of exposing huge corporate machines in the insurance industry. Its time that the power in this country get out of the pockets of large corporations. It is insane that healthcare in this country costs more for every single product or procedure than those countries we count among our peers.
