Blog CCP Scores a Coup

I've been wanting to post something about the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), probably based on the superb column done by Paul Krugman showing that Bush is actually harming children to prevent government from demonstrating that it can help the situation.

Over at Blog CCP, a post on the subject is already up - posted by someone who's closer to the issue than I am, or Paul Krugman is. Missouri's Democratic Senator has posted on the site, providing an informed, inside perspective on how Republican partisanship may harm children.

That's pretty cool. A Senator publishing on a local blog. Blog CCP is distinguishing itself as the new gathering spot for political types.

I guess since the CCP was the first Democratic club to endorse her bid for governor over Holden, it's not suprising.

Wasn't McCaskill a CCP member?

That is pretty cool.

Now pardon me while I engage in a bit of blog-whoring...Corpus Juris, an attorney from Independence who posts at Watching Those We Chose has been prolific on the S-CHIP issue. We can all be proud of him for the work he has done on behalf of enlightening the reader on the issue.

Wow, my daughter's family will qualify for SChip even though they make over $70K per year. Premiums are only $20/month in Ks. They need to drop their employer insurance as soon as this passes!
