Bliar in Chief

Why does President Bush perpetuate the falsehood that the S-CHIP bill would provide insurance to people making up to $83,000? The version I viewed limited benefits to 300% of federal poverty level (that is before relocated it) This drops the income cut off by some $20,000 from George's reported wider stance.

Senators Orin Hatch of Utah and Chuck Grassley of Iowa repeatedly called this characterization false, yet George continues. He even shared the fake number with the Wall Street Journal today in an exclusive interview. One might expect the world's finest business journal to call the President on his error, but the Journal is now in Rupert Murdoch's hands.
