What a Shame! President Bush's SCHIP Veto

Posted on 10/4/2007 11:52 AM

Dear friends,


We knew it was coming, but it was still a major disappointment.


Yesterday, President Bush vetoed a bipartisan plan to reauthorize the State Children's Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP) - a plan that has played a critical role in improving our children's health for the past decade.


Fortunately, Congress can still override the veto. You can click here to find contact information for your U.S. Representative and ask him or her to stand up for the children of working parents. For more information about S-CHIP, how the Texas delegation voted, and the impact of the President's veto, you can also click here.


If you missed my S-CHIP interview on Univision last night, you may be interested to read the press release I distributed minutes after the veto.


Together we can ensure that our government makes smart, responsible investments to ensure that children can reach their full potential!
