Nice post and an excellent roundup on the subject. I voted this morning, but have been gone all day, just now reading it.

Yes, by all means, trot out the "children". I always cringe when the Liberals say they want to do something for the "children", because it usually means just the opposite.

If this is socialized medicine in 2007 it was socialized medicine when it was passed by a Republican congress in 1994. Delivery is by the private sector and funding comes from federal and state govt. The measure is supported by huge numbers of Republican senators, 45 governors, the American Medical Association, the insurance industry, the pharma industry and just about everyone else. It works and gives about 6 million kids insurance but despite that the number of kids without insurance has gone up by about a million over the past couple of years and the changes would probably add about 4 million kids to the program. Those are the facts. The vetoing of this measure is suicidal politically. Chanting "socialized medicine" and replaying ridiculous talking points is a poor substitute for the very obvious benefits of the program. I'm a fiscal conservative but at some point we are going to have to get beyond this sort of nonsense because it's wrecking the GOP. We seem to have lost all ability for independant thought judging by this posting and the comments.

From what I understand is that children who are eligible for health care under their parents' private health care would be eligible for socialized medicine as well.

As an innocent bystander, that doesn't seem right...

excellent piece. I think the Reps will have a hard time with this political. It maybe good policy however it will be very easy to portray them as anti child. In order to win the debate, this must be spun around into socialized versus privatized medicine, and into small versus big government. Furthermore, since this is paid by a cigarette tax, we must ask do the Dems want Americans to continue smoking. What if Americans start to quit, how will we pay for the program.

Great piece Faultline with some accurate and troubling examples of that pervasive liberal media bias.
But do we honestly expect the truth anymore?
