SCHIP Family Under Fire

Everyone is a target in this partisan age - even the kids (or at least their parents).

One Republican attack group is raising questions about the net worth of a Baltimore couple whose son has become something of a poster child for the expansion of a state-run children's health care program that President Bush vetoed last week.

Apparently, Bonnie and Frederick Halsey Frost own two properties in Baltimore with a combined value of more than $420,000, according to the advanced copy of an article by the Majority Accountability Project. The couple also sends two of their children to the Park School, a private school with an annual tuition of $19,500, the group reports.

Graeme Frost, the couple's 12-year-old son who receives coverage under the popular state-run, federally funded children's health care program, delivered the Democratic response to the president's weekly radio address last month amid much fanfare drummed up by congressional Democrats.
