Amy Menefee of the Business & Media Institute on what the SCHIP expansion would really do, and the “but its for the kids” media onslaught. (Balanced coverage from the Bulletin, using me to counter Bob “It’s a terrible day for children” Casey, excluded.)

Philadelphia Daily News: BUSH: SUFFER, LITTLE CHILDREN
Philadelphia Inquirer: “Children Last”
Post-Gazette: President Bush, are you smarter than a seventh-grader? Apparently not.
