"That is what SCHIP is for isn’t?

Yes it is. I guess my point is, SCHIP for real minor children is a good thing. It is the sign of a compassionate society. SCHIP for 25 year men and women, is not a good thing. It's a sign of rampant socialism. Too many states have bled the SCHIP funds dry because they extend the benefits to people who should be able to purchase private insurance themselves.

you know, if the govt wasn’t spending zillions of dollars on handouts for people who don’t really need it, we would have more money for the truly poor who are simply incapable of caring for themselves.

The quickest way to screw a situation up is to let a politician anywhere near it.

Fundamentally, wrong. It is the sign of a government usurping compassion from free human beings, the taxpayers, aka "the people."

It goes so far as to force taxpayers to pay for something many find beyond repugnant and immoral -- being forced to support with their labor the practic of abortions.

Before things like SCHIF, etc., Christian charity had done a pretty good and progressively better job with a lot of it in prosperous, free Western societies for the past couple of centuries ... but I guess we can't have that, can we? Simply out of the question. Why, who's in charge? Who's the acting authority? Things are different now, though a pretty wise book tells us that "there's nothing new under the sun."

A "compassionate" government is a slave operation, and it ain't new.
