Skip to comments.The "Not So Poor" 12 Year Old Who Rebutted Bush on SCHIP Veto
Posted on 10/06/2007 10:42:57 PM PDT by icwhatudo
Graeme Frost, who gave the democrat rebuttal to George Bushs reasons for vetoing the SCHIP Bill, is a middle school student at the exclusive$20,000 per year Park School in Baltimore, MD.
Graeme was in a severe car accident three years ago, and received care paid for by the government program known as SCHIP-(State Children's Health Insurance Program)
"I was in a coma for a week and couldn't eat or stand up or even talk. My sister was even worse," Graeme wrote. "My parents work really hard and always make sure my sister and I have everything we need, but we can't afford private health insurance."
His sister Gemma, also severely injured in the accident, attended the same school prior to the accident meaning the family was able to come up with nearly $40,000 per year for tuition for these 2 grade schoolers. Confirmation both attended Park found here using edit-"find on this page"-Gemma. It will take you to an article in the schools newspaper about a fundraiser for Gemma class of 16, and Graeme class of 13.
Here are photos of the school's 44,000 square foot Wyman Arts Center: two galleries, an outdoor ampitheater, Meyerhoff Theater, Macks-Fidler Black Box Theater, practice rooms, rehearsal space, and ceramics, 3-D sculpture, woodworking, jewelry, painting, photography, digital graphics studios, recording studio, and keyboard lab.
In a Baltimore Sun article the family claims to be raising their four children on combined income of about $45,000 a year. "Bonnie Frost works for a medical publishing firm; her husband, Halsey, is a woodworker. They are raising their four children on combined income of about $45,000 a year. Neither gets health insurance through work."
What the article does not mention is that Halsey Frost has owned his own company "Frostworks",since this marriage announcement in the NY Times in 1992 so he chooses to not give himself insurance. He also employed his wife as "bookkeeper and operations management" prior to her recent 2007 hire at the "medical publishing firm". As her employer, he apparently denied her health insurance as well.
His company, Frostworks, is located at 3701 E BALTIMORE ST. A building that was purchased for $160,000 in 1999. The buildings owner is listed as DIVERSIFIED INDUSTRIAL DESIGN CENTER, LLC whose mailing address is listed as 104 S Collington Ave which is the Frost's home. The commercial property he owns is also listed as the business address for another company called Reillys Designs which leads to the question of whether rental income is included in the above mentioned salary total
The current market value of their improved 3,040 SF home at 104 S Collington Ave is unknown but 113 S COLLINGTON AVE, also an end unit, sold for $485,000 this past March and it was only 2,060 SF. A photo taken in the family's kitchen shows what appears to be a recent remodeling job with granite counter tops and glass front cabinets
One has to wonder that if time and money can be found to remodel a home, send kids to exclusive private schools, purchase commercial property and run your own business... maybe money can be found for other things...maybe Dad should drop his woodworking hobby and get a real job that offers health insurance rather than making people like me (also with 4 kids in a 600sf smaller house and tuition $16,000 less per kid and no commercial property ownership) pay for it in my taxes.

WEDDINGS; Bonnie Sebring, Halsey Frost
Bonnie Lynn Sebring, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James R. Sebring Sr. of Sparks, Md., was married yesterday to Frederick Halsey Frost, the son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Corwin Frost of Bronxville, N.Y. The Rev. Anne Reed performed the ceremony at Immanuel Episcopal Church in Glencoe, Md.
Mrs. Frost, 26 years old, is a receptionist at the Cat Hospital at Towson, in Baltimore. She graduated from Towson State University. Her father is an electrical engineer at Tracor Inc., a defense electronics manufacturer in Crystal City, Va.
Mr. Frost, also 26, is known as Halsey. He owns Frostworks, a woodworking and furniture-design studio in Baltimore. His mother, Randy Frost, is a quilt artist. His father is the deputy director of design and construction for the City University of New York in Manhattan. The bridegroom’s late grandfather Frederick G. Frost Jr. was an architect responsible for several public buildings in New York, including Martin Luther King High School in Manhattan..

Twenty years ago...the national party’s and the media could have been secure in putting out a message that was basically bogus. The public wasn’t smart enough, and we didn’t have to the tools to chase down a story.
Go look at the timeline. How long did it take to dismantle this story? Less than 24 hours? The Rather story on GW...72 hours to hit the internet, and another 24 hours to hit the major networks (well...Fox first and then a week later for the other networks).
What you are looking at is a powerful use of the internet to connect the dots and have people chase down certain aspects of a story. We can have some story start out of Provo, Utah...and FreeRepublic can have five or six guys there in town checking out facts and asking the right questions. Within 24 hours...a huge story can be corrected or dumped because of the power of the internet. The national media? Worthless from this point on.
LOL, the scumbag Democrats nailed again.
It’s no so much that they constantly lie - - that’s what Democrats DO - - it’s that they are so shameless about it.
Always so shameless....
This just frosts me to no end. I’ve raised three kids in an 1953 ranch house with 1800 sq ft. We’ve sent our kids to public schools and have never been able to afford a remodel in California. Our kitchen is stuck in a 1965 time warp and probably will be forever. My wife and I have always been careful to make sure we had insurance coverage, including the four years I was self-employed.
The thought of me and other Freepers paying for these bastards’ health care when they are forking over $40k per year for a private school really makes me sick. This is yet another example of the many evils of socialism.
Did you do the research? Wow and kudos to you if you did. Great job.
I’ll email this out to the papers...
Needs to be sent to the conservative radio hosts too.
And now we have “phony” kids! Next?
Thanks-it wasn’t like finding Dan Rather’s fake “th” but hopefully those with the juice can get this out there.
The BS media line that he could not get health insurance from “work” ...when he owns his own company... is a great example of how the media lies not by telling you things that aren’t true, but by simply not telling you things. I know some commented on the Park school thing already, but to discover that his sister went to the 20k a year school too is nuts.
Hmmmmmm, now I wonder where the other two kids go to school?
BUSH HATES KIDS!
Fantastic work. Kudos.
A Mom named Randy? That has to hurt somewhere..
My thoughts too!
I haven't been keeping up with the news the last few days, so this is all new to me. I did know about Bush's veto, but didn't know about them using this kid for this. Even if I had known, I don't think I would have thought about trying to find info on them. Once again, great job!
