So Isn't It Working Now?

This story outlines the controversy arising from the Democrats' use of the Frost family to illustrate how important the S-Chip program is.

The Frosts say that they speak on behalf of SCHIP so that it may help other families the way it helped them. But isn't that the point -- that the program, as it's currently constituted, already helps people like the Frosts? No one is trying to eliminate SCHIP; Republicans are merely objecting to it being expanded to more affluent people.

So what, exactly, does the Frosts' testimony prove, except that the program is working just fine in its current form?
