Susan Collins to CHIP kids: No health care for you, maybe next year
By Joan McCarter

"It's day 81 since the Children's Health Insurance Program funding expired, and if you can take Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lamar Alexander's (R-TN) word on it it won't be funded this week. In negotiating a delay in their Obamacare stabilization bills (surprise!) apparently they also negotiated away immediate action on CHIP and community health centers. That's health care for roughly 35 million people."
"Meanwhile, parents around the country are getting Christmas letters saying their kids' health care is gone."
"Jam the phone lines of House and Senate Republicans. Call (202) 224-3121, and tell them to stop holding kids hostage and to pass a clean funding bill for CHIP and community health centers."

How Heartless! How Cruel! How Insensitive! How Downright Stupid to do our nation's children that way, Republicans! You have No Heart, No Conscience and No Spirit for children at all.

That's what Republicans are all about though and why we need to get rid of them posthaste and start electing more Democrats in order to restore CHIP and other vital health services to children who need them the most in this country.

No, you passed a bill full of poison pills that included CHIP funding as a sweetener, the usual hostage taking of the GOP...pass a clean fucking bill...

I think both Parties agree CHIPS needs to be funded. It's how it will be funded. We have to fund CHIPS, do something about the Opioid Epidemic, and rebuild our Infrastructure. But hey, tax cuts to the wealthy first.
