The U.S. Senate is currently debating the Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) Reauthorization Act of 2009 (S. 275).
SCHIP helps ensure that children have access to affordable, comprehensive health coverage. It's one of the most effective public programs in the country.
SCHIP has helped cut the rate of uninsured children by about one-third since 1997.
If reauthorized, this program could reduce uninsured numbers nationwide by two-thirds.
In the current economic recession, SCHIP is more important than ever: polls consistently show that health care costs are one of the top concerns among families in tough times.
Please contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to:
Vote YES on the SCHIP Reauthorization; and
Vote NO on any attempts to weaken the bill's coverage for properly documented immigrants.
