Child Health Care Splits White House and States
Governors clashed with the White House on Monday over the future of the popular Children’s Health Insurance Program [...]

Having successfully expanded the health insurance programs in their states, some governors now suggest that the Bush administration is pulling the safety net out from under many children.

[...]

States would need substantially more to continue their programs with current eligibility rules and benefits. New estimates from the Congressional Budget Office show that the states face shortfalls of $700 million this year and a total shortage of $13.4 billion from 2008 to 2012.

Screw those CHIP kids. Bombs away.

Hey, no problem. They can up their income simply by cutting taxes. It's a simple Republiklutz theory of economics that says, Income = expenses + revenue shortfall X existing deficit.

I mean, it works for George Bush, right?
