Liberals freaking out over using CHIP for Obamacare replacement
Here's a good reporting nugget in today's Washington Post Obamacare repeal story:
Jonathan Chait, a liberal columnist for New York magazine, calls it "taking children's health care hostage." There's been some Twitter outrage, too.
Why it matters: There's nothing new about Congress using must-pass bills as vehicles for more controversial stuff. But this is a good sign that if Republicans try it with CHIP, the politics of Obamacare will get even uglier.
