The Jim Idon’tknowski comedy routine gets funnier every day. The latest: Team Ogo has threatened to sue five TV stations that are set to run an ad about SCHIP taken out by the SEIU. The beef: the ad is “deliberately deceptive” because the ad “says Ogonowski believes the health-care program is ‘harmful’ to poor children.”
Gosh, that’s outrageous! Everyone knows that Jim Idon’tknowski is SCHIP’s biggest fan! What could possibly have led the SEIU to make such a shocking accusation?
SCHIP was originally intended to help poor children. Instead Congress worked to expand another big-government program that actually harms those working class children and families it was supposed to help. We all support helping poor children and families, but government seems unable to help those who need us. When I helped organize the largest airlift of aid in New Hampshire National Guard history to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, I saw firsthand how big government programs like FEMA don’t work for the American people.
Oh, right. Never mind.
Good luck with that lawsuit, though!
