Last week was my son’s first birthday. He’s one, and adorable, and I am not just saying that. People agree he’s objectively cute.
He’s also very healthy. Yet in his first year, we’ve been to the doctor at least nine times; he’s been sick from other kids at day care at least four times; and we had to go to the emergency room once. Thank god we have little Jefferson covered.
It is in that context that I really hope that the Congress overrides President Bush’s veto of the SCHIP (State Child Health Insurance Program).
