Politics of SCHIP not entirely obvious

A USA Today/Gallup poll released Monday suggests that the SCHIP veto may not be the public relations victory that advocates of socialized medicine and the president’s political rivals were hoping for.

Not Everyone Supports S-CHIP

Nancy Pelosi has decided to force a vote on overturning Bush's S-CHIP veto this week.  I'm obviously not a huge fan of the White House position on the program, but Pelosi's vote should be seen for what it is: a cheap excuse for Democrats to lambaste Bush for "denying" children health care.  Pelosi doesn't have the votes she needs to overturn the veto, and she knows it, but that doesn't mean that various liberal groups, including labor unions and others, aren't trying to bully hold-out legislators into flipping.  The SEIU and an array of liberal organizations have launched a series of ads targeted against Republicans they believe to be weak on the issue.  This New York Times story on one their targets, Maryland Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, gives a cross-section of the Rep's district, and contains one fairly heartening passage:

Cook County Telecommunications Tax: A Whole Lot of Wrong Numbers

Every time I open my phone bill I am amazed at the new and innovative taxes and fees applied there by everyone from the federal government to local unincorporated hamlets: federal excise taxes, carrier universal service charge, city utility user fee, state and local taxes, gross receipts tax, and the making phone calls on days that end in “y” duty.

Clinton retirement plan rests on rich

BY Matt Stearns

Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., on Tuesday proposed a new multibillion-dollar retirement plan -- billed as a universal 401(k) plan with federal matching funds -- to supplement Social Security for middle-class workers. The accounts would cost the Treasury $20 billion to $25 billion a year, the second-most-expensive initiative Clinton has rolled out in her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Her plan for universal health care would cost more than $100 billion a year. ''I am not proposing anything I don't have a way to pay for,'' she said.
