S-CHIP: It's for the Children!

Next time you hear an annoying piece of rhetoric about how anyone opposed to S-CHIP doesn't want kids to have health care, remember these interesting tidbits that Cato was kind enough to dig up:

"Currently, 12 states currently use S-CHIP funds to provide taxpayer-funded insurance for adults. According to data released by the Department of Health and Human Services in July, Wisconsin covers almost twice as many adults as children — and spends 75 percent of its S-CHIP funds on them. Minnesota spends 63 percent of its S-CHIP funds on adults. In New Jersey, it’s 43 percent."
