Winning the Argument on SCHIP

Fred Barnes offers some helpful advice and a "winning strategy" to Republicans on SCHIP after citing the much discussed Gallup poll. Money quote:

Limiting S-chip to its original purpose of providing health insurance to poor children (in families at less than $41,200 income) meets with the public's approval. Expanding S-chip into the middle class doesn't. The key is citing the $61,800 figure. .....
So the Republican task on S-chip is easy. All they need to do is oppose making middle class families earning up to $61,800 eligible for a program designed to aid the poor.
