This SCHIP Won't Sail, Part 3

There is some new polling from Gallup, showing that 52% of Americans believe “most [SCHIP] benefits should go to children in families earning less than 200% of the federal poverty level – about $41,000 for a family of four. Only 40% said benefits should go to families earning up to $62,000…”

Congressman Kuhl agrees with most Americans on this issue, while Eric Massa wants this program to cover upper-middle class families, which can only be accomplished through a tax increase, and is making this the cornerstone of his campaign. Again, I can't wait until November 2008!
