The biggest irony of SCHIP - UPDATED

There are many ironies in the proposed expansion of SCHIP...but the biggest one of all is the fact that many families who are "too poor" and will thus qualify for enrollment in SCHIP, are also "too rich" and will have to pay the alternative minimum tax.

Guess the government has devised way to have OUR cake and eat it too.

***special thanks to Hooda Thunkit who pointed out that it's "our" cake...

This explains the "shrinking middle class" they've been simultaneously classified as both rich and poor, hence no longer middle.
