MI-Child or MI-Adult?

Democrats are promoting their changes to the SCHIP program as providing health care to poor kids. But a significant portion of the program's recipients are actually adults. In Michigan, SCHIP is known as MI-Child. Representative Tim Walberg, who courageously cast a tough vote against SCHIP, provides the facts.

In 2006, 118,501 children and 101,919 adults in Michigan received health care from the S-CHIP program. Incredibly, this means that 46 percent of Michigan’s funding allotment intended to give poor children health insurance actually went to cover adults.
The Democrats' changes to SCHIP would provide welfare for families that make up to $82,000. It would also give money to illegal aliens.
