Popular Children’s HealthCare Insurance Is Extended

Posted Aug 26 2008 12:30pm

Every now and then, politicians do the right thing. I know, I know, it’s hard to believe, but it does happen.

In this case, President Bush signed legislation that extends federally-funded children’s health care, reports The Associated Press . This follows two vetoes of Democrat-authored plans that would have expanded the original program.

The version Bush signed provides states enough money to cover existing programs through March 2009 when a new Congress and president will be in place.

It’s a relief to see children’s needs finally put ahead of party bickering and partisanship. Perhaps a better plan can be worked out next year.
