It appears that the advocates of SCHIP expansion did a poor job of choosing their poster family. The Frosts got a profile in the Baltimore Sun and one of their children, Graeme, was trundled up to Congress to pull on America’s heart strings. But it It turns out that these folks are not what most people would call “needy”:
Two of the Frost kids attend a $20K-per-year private school.
Mr. Frost runs a business out of a $160K building, which he owns.
The Frost’s own a 3,000 square-foot house, valued at $485K.
Keep in mind that the Democrats want to tax the working poor in order to provide such people with free government health care. How could President Bush NOT veto this travesty?
As disgraceful as this all is, it has produced some pretty decent satire. Here is a seriously funny take on the kind of family that will be covered under the new and improved SCHIP.
