Screw the kids. Tax breaks for the rich are more important. Maybe this time tricke-down will actually work.

I am not responsible for the medical care of my neighbor`s children --- they are, just as I was responsible for the medical care of my own children.

I never made a ton of money, but managed to take care of MY responsibilities . I never had a manicure, or went to a beauty salon, or bought video games... I took care of my children`s needs.

Why is personal responsibility so hard to understand for so many?


8 years of Obama-fail created a new generation of folks who believe the world owes them a lifetime worth of favors, just like him.

I don’t post or come here this time usually...



You should probably continue your normal practice.

Just pure intellectual laziness.

Looks like the Democrats are the ones who stonewalled for this situation to happen!


From your own source in which you failed to read far enough.......



There’s no actual dispute in Congress that CHIP should be reauthorized.
The House even passed a bill to do so last month. Democrats opposed the legislation in large part because it would fund the CHIP renewal by rolling back elements of the Affordable Care Act.




Bwahahahahahah!!!

Way to destroy an OP. Well done.

Why? It’s a circle I’ve already seen. The deficit does not matter now. I don’t know why funding the kids is hard. I bet the rich won’t mind.

Trump can take his tax cut and shove it

People will have to pay for that 'cut' somewhere else. Besides the tax "plan" is corrupt, benefitting the rich , the gubment never actually cuts from one revenue stream without getting it back somewhere else. In Europe they call that Austerity Measures. Ad you guessed it, the people pay for it.

Usually they wait a while though. Trump announced a tax increase on your paycheck by 'February'. They are already fleecing the money back from tax 'shuffles' , even before it kicks in?

Uncle Sam needs your... dollars.

Maybe because you're incapable of reading? the delusional liberal crowd who care only for terrorist, illegals and handouts, did we really expect you to be critical and actually know what you're talking about? lol, sad smh.

Ooga Booga! Trump Bad! Republicans EVIL! MILLIONS WILL DIE!!!!!!!!!

The Dems refused to give an inch, because it would've rolled back part of their "You have to pass it in order to read it!" bill, AKA the Absolutely Unaffordable Healthcare Act.... As evidenced in your link.

It also points out that Republicans will still have trouble passing their CHIP reauthorization bill in the senate, leading the notion that Democrats really don't want to vote for it.

And coming from Huff Post, I'm fairly surprised

Deficits and pay fors are yesterday. They can just agree to fund it now without paying for it. Dems would agree to that.

now people will use emergency rooms for care and those of us with health insurance will be paying. isn't that socialism?

my worry is that hospitals will stop treating people who don't have insurance or the money up front.. anyone else worried about this?

This logic is wonderful. We won't fund healthcare for children unless you repeal healthcare for all. Good Christian God-Fearing Americans now finally have a choice (and lets hope they make the right one) that we have to let a lot of people die to save the children! Its the Democrats fault that the Republicans are holding children's lives hostage.

Sometimes I think you and your ilk are a parody of comic evil.

If they don’t have money they should get jobs.

Freeloading scum.

The children are not freeloading scum.I would be ashamed if my country denied children healthcare because of their parents economic circumstances.
I am glad I do not live in your nation.

Children don’t pay taxes :: children are freeloaders.

This country was made great by little hands in factories and textile mills; why do you think China is out-manufacturing is? The average age of the American worker is too high, time to bring it down a little. If these kids wants healthcare they can earn in like the rest of us.

Nobody will deny a child healthcare. That's what medicare is for and all children are able to use it. I'm glad you don't live in my nation, too, we have enough uninformed people as it is.

Personal responsibility isn't the issue. These kids are not responsible for their parents. If the parents are not responsible, then screw the kids? If that's what you think, just say it plainly and out loud. But remember, it's the kids health that we are talking about. Not the parents character.


Dude, kids were able to get medicare before the unACA, and they're able to get it now.

I was only going by the OP claims.If no child suffers then I'm happy.
My point stands regarding your countryfolk in this thread who object paying taxes for poor kids pretty inhuman.The number of people who agree is another reason I wouldn't want to live in your country.
