Obama lifts restrictions on kids' health coverage
President Barack Obama made more children from middle-class families eligible for government health insurance by lifting a directive imposed by President Bush. In 2007, the Bush administration said it would strictly adhere to guidelines that limited the scope of the State Children's Health Insurance Program. In a memorandum, Obama completely lifted the restrictions, which many governors and Democratic lawmakers said were nearly impossible to meet.
