DEMOCRATS HAVE A SCHIP ON THEIR SHOULDER

Have you ever watched a fly that is trapped inside the house and finds a closed window ? The fly will inevitably try to get out of the closed window by repeatedly ramming its head into the widow thinking that because the outside is visible through the flies multiple eyes, that it should be able to just fly right out. It doesn't matter that the window is solid and the fly keeps bashing its head into the glass. The outside is right there in front of it and the fly will continue until sometimes it kills itself in the process.

This reminds me of the Democrats in Congress. First it was the continual resolutions trying to force the President's hand into pulling our troops out of Iraq. They have sent resolution after resolution all basically calling for a quick surrender and each time the resolution has either fallen to defeat or when attached to an appropriations bill is VETOED by Bush. Still they try and still they fail just like the fly.

Now comes SCHIP. The State Children's Health Insurance Program. Democrats sent a bill to the President asking for far more money than the President was willing to approve and he promptly VETOED the bill as promised amidst cries from Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi claiming the President more or less wants to take health care from children. Sure their claims are a lie but they play well in the media so what do Democrats care about the truth.

So the bill is revised, actually only reworded with a few minor changes that do not even attempt to address the huge funding increase and the expansion of the first bill. Bush has promised to VETO it yet the Dems continue to fly into the glass once again.

The SCHIP program is currently under a temporary extension in order to allow the program to keep operating. Why then if this program is so important for, "children, " are the President and the Democrats in Congress at odds ? Could it be that the program itself is flawed and Democrats are making it worse ?

First, the reason Democrats are trying to expand the program is not because there are more children without health care but because there were so few applying for the program that the current level of funding was not being spent. So rather than spending what was needed and returning the rest to the federal coffers, Democrats decided to expand eligibility for the program so it would be available to more, "children."

The problem is that this expansion allows families making up to $ 80,000 dollars a year eligibility for the program. Not only would the children of these middle class families be eligible but if a family decides to drop private health care in favor of SCHIP, then every member of the family, ADULTS AND CHILDREN would receive this government funded program.

Also the Democrats plan to fund the expansion by taxing cigarettes. On the surface this sounds noble because after all cigarettes are harmful and it has been proven that when taxes increase per pack, smoking decreases. Not counting the probability that an additional tax would decrease smoking, at current smoking levels if the SCHIP bill were funded as the Democrats have presented it, there would need to be 22 million more Americans needed to START smoking in order to fund the program.

Yet despite this Democrats have, "revised, " (yeah right), the bill and sent it to the Senate who plan to, "revise, " it in like manner. Then off to the President for another VETO. Flies hitting the window over and over again.

It is no wonder that Congressional approval ratings are staying around 11 - 12 %. In fact the Democrat leadership announced that next year Congress will only have a four day work week. They are not at all effective in five days so how do they expect to be MORE effective in four ? Then again maybe this is their way of fulfilling their promise on being an effective Congress after the 2006 election. NOT being in session may prove to be much more effective than BEING in session!

On thing is for certain, Capitol Janitors will appreciate having one less day to clean Democrat flies off the windows from Dems continually beating their heads against the glass!

I cant believe this Congress has failed and it's only been a few months.

I dont think we can take another year of this.

Yes, another year of this congress is truly a depressing and revolting situation!

I love your analogy, Ken. Congress reminds you of flies banging their heads against a window! LOL! Priceless and all too true!

Great post, Ken, and the "Analogy of the Flies", LOL, is, as Gayle so aptly put it, priceless.

What else could we expect, though, from a party that battles both fanatically and incessantly to replace the most successful political system in the history of the world with a proven failure?
