SCHIP Easily Passes in the House

The House voted overwhelmingly to pass the reauthorization of the State Children's Health Insurance Program (H.R. 2) this afternoon, 286-138. More commonly known as SCHIP, the program provides low income children access to health care.

President Bush twice vetoed similar legislation during the 110th Congress. The bill would reauthorize SCHIP for more than four years.

I would like to hear about the fraud in the SCHIP program. I just read an article about NJ paying for a married couple without children. Is anybody watching?
