On this blog I have been remiss not to weigh in on the recent and ongoing debate over children’s health insurance and the SCHIP or State Children’s Health Insurance Program.
Not surprisingly, some of the wittiest commentary has come from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Their segments within the past week should not be missed.
Stewart’s coverage on the Daily Show includes a biting commentary from John Oliver.
On the Colbert Report, the host said:
“If we really care for our kids, we should deny them health insurance now to immunize them against expecting it as adults. If we don’t, when they grow up, who knows what other unrealistic things they’re going to expect? You know, if we fund Head Start now, later, they’ll expect education. If we fund school lunches now, later, they’ll expect food.”
Who spent more time exploring the issues and looking at the debate: Comedy Central? Or ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Fox?
