ABSTRACT
The article reports on the battle between Congress and the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush over the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) expansion as being focused more on the difference on the role of government in healthcare. After President Bush vetoed the bill and the House failed to override the veto, Congress reportedly worked on a compromise. Sarah Rosenbaum clarifies the wrong direction being referred to which is turning the SCHIP battle into a proxy war over duties for national healthcare reform.
