George Bush Wants Kids to Get Sick and Die

Just kidding. He'd like kids to stay healthy. It's just that if they get sick, he wants them to die. Thus, his plan to veto a bill expanding S-CHIP, a program to give health insurance to kids. The issue, as The New Republic explains is that "for every ten people who gain insurance through s-chip expansions, between two and five fewer will get private insurance" because along with giving insurance to people who currently lack insurance, it'll also be an opportunity for some people to move out of the nightmar world of private health insurance which, of course, is bad if your job in politics is to represent the financial interests of private health insurers.
