"The Children," And SCHIP

Even though the SCHIP bill covers adults, a sampling of the headlines today:

L.A. Times: Child Health Veto Will Be Election Issue

New York Times: Bush Vetoes Children's Health Bill

Washington Post: Bush Vetoes Children's Health Insurance Plan

San Francisco Chronicle: Bush Veto of Kids' Health Bill Puts Pressure on House GOP

Did any human in the MSM read this bill? Their ability to consistently achieve stunning stupidity about the English language and simple facts never disappoints.

"Bush Vetoes Middle Class Welfare Bill To Provide Adults Health Insurance."

That's the accurate headline (Congressman Zach Wamp of Tennessee has an outstanding column on this issue, here).

The media is only outdone by Congress. Put "the children" on any bill in Congress and half of the 535 Thomas Jeffersons we elected would vote for it no matter what.
