Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 536 -- SCHIP (Socialized Children's Health Insurance Program).

Socialized Medicine For Kids-

When S-CHIP was first sold to the American people, it was supposed to be an insurance program of last resort for children in poverty. Like just about any government program, every few years S-CHIP has been tweaked to "fix" gaps in the program. In just a couple of decades of existence, S-CHIP will have grown from a tiny safety net program into a full-fledged mega-entitlement:

Most conservatives will concede that poor children should have some sort of safety net if they are sick, but what we're doing is imposing an unaffordable, socialized middle-class health care entitlement for all children, which will inexorably lead to an even more unaffordable, socialized health care system for everyone.

That is what Socialism does. It plays on peoples emotions and seeps into our lives like a thief in the night. It is sneaky like all the PORK that passed through the so called economic stimulus package. Our brand new Socialist POTUS Obama kept insisting it be hurried through without examination. That is how Socialism works.
