An important question before we go into the S-CHIP discussion...If a man bought a stock years ago for $55, and today its worth $500, would someone who said its worth $500 be a liar? So the same would go for someone who bought a house for 55 grand years ago...
The post that started it all:
Feel free to cut and paste the part where I "attacked a 12 year old"
Many media outlets and left wing blogs are crowing about all the supposed falsehoods contained in my original post. Lets take a look- point by point before you believe the MSM:
I'd like to say something to Mr. and Mrs. Frost. Maybe a media type reading this can get this to them:
I want you to know that I'm truly sorry for what happened to your family. I hope your kids continue with their recovery and I hope your business improves to the point where you will not need the S-CHIP program anymore. I'm sure you are not pleased at my interest in your finances but at the same time I hope you will see there is absolutely no attack on your son contained in my post.
You made a choice to become public figures, to allow your son to be coached to give the democrat response to president Bushs veto of the expansion of S-CHIP. An expansion that would wind up covering my family as well. As I understand it, his veto does not take away your family's coverage. Overturning that veto would mean my family would get that coverage.
In my opinion this would take our country further down the road to government run health care. We both have seen what the government has done running the public schools and that is why we both have opted for private schooling.
Your family opted to appear in the Baltimore Sun as a model of the type of family that currently uses S-CHIP, mine could be a model of the type that that it shouldn't be expanded to. We have a nice home, 2 cars, all 4 kids in private school and are able to spend 2 weeks at the beach each year. I just don't think its fair for other people to have to pay for my families health care. My wife and I would love to run our own business, but our decisions on employment are usually focused on who provides the best health care first, what we want to do second.
I thought it was important to examine what families using S-CHIP in its current form were like so we could understand if there really was a need to expand it to higher income families. You choose to be that family in the spotlight and I'm sorry you now have to face this examination.
Soon the media trucks will be gone and life will be back to somewhat normal. I keep you and your family in my prayers.
