S-CHIP, Foreclosure and Retirement

Reader Elmer sends today's Corning Leader story [pdf] (and jump [pdf]) about the new Republican S-CHIP extension bill. This bill is an extension of the current bill with no change in benefits.

The story covers Kuhl's attempt to inoculate himself against his opposition to S-CHIP expansion last year. It includes the statement that Kuhl voted against the original expansion because it "included illegal immigrants and adults." The adult provision was unchanged from the original S-CHIP bill, and I've debunked the illegal immigrant charge. Unfortunately, the Leader didn't get a response from Massa, though I'm sure one will be forthcoming.

Yesterday's Hornell Evening Tribune included a story about the Foreclosure Bill.

Finally, Kuhl has an op-ed in the Steuben Courier about a new bill he co-sponsored with John McHugh [NY-23] creating retirement health accounts similar to 401(k) and IRA accounts.
