"Bush's Veto Lies" Column Headline Tells The Real Health Care Story

Turns out that the much-ballyhooed $83,000 eligibility income limit in the popular, bi-partisan health insurance expansion bill that Pres. George W. Bush vetoed...isn't in the bill after all.

So for those of you who said the whole story wasn't being told, even though this is not what you meant, well, now you know the rest of the story.

If that is true, and I have no reason to think it is not, then I stand corrected, I would support this bill. I did not know that the $83,000 figure was not in the bill.

I still do not like Government run health insurance, look at medicare and mediaid, always running out of money or about to. When Government gets involved they set prices, which is why many doctors are not accepting new medicaid or medicare patients.

However, in the mean time, I guess a bill like this will have to do. It is more important the children get the health care coverage they need, even if their parents are or could be considered irresponsible.
