Hill;7/25/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 90, p25
The author reflects on the national healthcare in the U.S. It is stated that President George Bush extended the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) that will expire in September 30, 2007. The Congress moved to use the program to expand coverage of adults without insurance but the administration of President George W. Bush opposed it. He believes that Congress should back off since expanding the SCHIP is a major accomplishment, while adding the adult coverage is unrealistic.
