Healthcare for Millions of Kids at Risk

Don’t let funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) expire. Congress must act immediately to extend funding for CHIP before millions of children lose access to affordable healthcare coverage.

Why is this important?

"Sorry kids, no health care for you because Congress is busy not doing anything. Good luck!" Unless we pressure Congress to act, this will be the reality for families working hard to make ends meet.

Millions of children risk losing access to healthcare coverage next year if Congress fails to extend funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). CHIP covers millions and it's helped decrease the number of uninsured children by half since it passed with bipartisan support in 1997.

Families have enough to worry about. The health security of their kids shouldn't be one of them. Tell Congress to do the right thing and extend funding for CHIP immediately.

Reasons for signing

  • Children who are uninsured due to being disadvantaged need to be covered with this insurance. It is not their fault they are in this position. Everyone is not going to be in a high or even medium level of living. There is no way. We will always have people that are low income. That is how our country works. Maybe we should look at some of the other countries and what they do. But our children need help. And they are our children.
  • If millionaires , billionaires and corporations can be given unjustified billions, surely America can find a way to continue the necessary program. america
  • Are you trying to kill our children and elderly? You need to save healthcare many elderly people are on Medicaid and fixed incomes they cannot afford to pay for expensive healthcare. Especially those on SSI like my mother. Have a ♥️Trump and save Medicaid and Medicare and healthcare for all!!!
