The article reports on Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's willingness to delay discussions for the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) bill in the U.S. The decision intends to provide Democratic Party members enough time to persuade resistant Republicans and to gather sufficient majority votes in the Congress. Reid rather decides to consider farm policies, expected to take more than a week, before resuming deals for the SCHIP bill.
