The article reports on the failure to inact a reauthorization and expansion of the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) in the U.S. The House Democrats have proposed adding $50 billion on SCHIP from the currently $5 billion. However, president George W. Bush has denied the Democrats proposal. According to a former Republican ally the president's move would serve as political benefits for the Democrats over the Republicans during the November 2008 election.
