SCHIP

passed the House last night.

As a House aide points out, apparently the socialist temptation was too much this time for congressman to even read their interest groups’ policy papers:

After Democrats repeatedly claimed that SCHIP does not go to illegals on the floor yesterday, it might be worth pointing that even big labor says they are wrong:

“The [bill] does not allow one single dime to be spent on illegal immigrants,” said Rep. John D. Dingell (D-Mich.) in the Los Angeles Times.

“The AFL-CIO Working for America Institute (WAI)” has done a useful summary of “Federal Benefit Programs available to Documented and Undocumented Workers”.  In it, they say that under the current S-CHIP program “a few states have extended SCHIP to ‘unqualified children’.” 

So S-CHIP benefits are already provided to illegal alien children, according to Big Labor and information currently on their website.
