Here’s an excerpt from President Bush’s 2004 speech at the Republican National Convention:
“America’s children must also have a healthy start in life. In a new term, we will lead an aggressive effort to enroll millions of poor children who are eligible but not signed up for the government’s health insurance programs. We will not allow a lack of attention, or information, to stand between these children and the health care they need. (Applause.)”
In fairness, here’s the White House’s website response on SCHIP.
