Spitzer to Sue Bush for Gutting Children's Health Care

News & Politics
This post, written by Matt Stoller, originally appeared on Open Left

Eliot Spitzer, after weathering a rather nast right-wing smear attempt over the past month, is now threatening to sue the Bush administration if Bush goes ahead with his SCHIP strategy and cuts health care to kids in New York state. Spitzer is doing an event tomorrow with Hillary Clinton, which will be webcast today at 10:30am.

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out, and I will say that Spitzer actually knows how to fight.
But the new rules include what Mr. Spitzer called "poison pill" requirements that he said would effectively kill New York's and others states' plans.
