Business Socialism

That's what NRO's David Freddoso calls industry support for S-CHIP, as business owners stand to profit from dumping dependents on the state. This isn't a new thing -- my friend Tim Carney wrote an entire book about businesses that feed off of various government subsidies and programs -- but it's depressing all the same.

Muni-Fi: Still Not Working

This isn't exactly news, but city-run wi-fi projects are expensive and worthless -- and businesses aren't getting much out of their investments in them.  Via TLF's Adam Thierer, WSJ's Ben Charny has the goods:

The Government Calls it 'Elective Surgery'

This shouldn't be news to anyone here, but nationalized health care isn't the medical utopia you often hear its advocates proclaim, and it's always worth revisiting some of the health-care stories that come out of those systems. Ladies and gents, I give you John Stossel:

Framing the Debate on S-CHIP

As everyone expected, S-CHIP passed in the House yesterday, and by a pretty wide margin: Last night, 45 Republicans voted for the bill -- more than Republican supporters had expected and a sharp jump from the five who supported the original House version in August. Eight Democrats voted against it. Not a veto-proof majority -- so it doesn't look like it will actually become law any time soon -- but one that suggests how weak the resistance was to this bill.

S-CHIP: A Failure, But Also a Success!

E.J. Dionne's column on S-CHIP today strikes me as somewhat oddly reasoned:

Hugo Chavez Keeps Getting Loonier

This story would be funnier if Chavez wasn't derailing his country by expanding the state's control over the economy and the media.

Throwing Out S-CHIP

The President and Congress can't seem to come to an agreement on what to do about S-CHIP. Congressional Democrats, and, unfortunately, a number of Republicans, want to lard the program with tens of billions more in taxpayer dollars. Bush just wants to adjust the program for inflation so that it keeps on going more or less as it is. In today's New York Post, Cato's Michael Cannon has a better solution: Dump the program entirely.

Key Vote 'NO' on the big government SCHIP bill

On behalf of nearly 850,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge you to VOTE NO on the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) reauthorization bill up for a vote Tuesday. The bill exceeds the president’s already generous request by $30 billion dollars, and he is right to threaten a veto.

Guess Who's Coming to (Just) Dinner

So, President Bush will only attend one part of a UN gabfest on global warming--the dinner--and, needless to say, people are irritated. The Times article makes it sound as if Bush is out for a round of golf and drinks: "Bush to Skip U.N. Talks on Global Warming" is the headline. But is the White House really so absent on the issue?
