On Oct. 26, President Bush scolded Congress for wasting time on the children's health care bill.
He said the Democrats want to expand the program by $60-billion over the next five years, but he adds that's too expensive.
Congressman Ed Whitfield agrees.
"We are willing to expand it, but Nancy Pelosi has been unwilling to negotiate with us. So I think what's going to happen is, you're going to see a continuing resolution to continue the S-CHIP program through next summer as it stands today," Whitfield explained.
SCHIP stands for State Children's Health Insurance Program and currently covers six-million children whose parents make too much money to qualify for Medicaid, but can't afford private insurance.
