Save the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)

Tell your Congressmen and Senators to save CHIP (Children's Health Insurance Program) which serves 8.9 million children. Our country easily funds endless wars but can't find the money to fund children's healthcare.

Why is this important?

If we can not care for the most vulnerable among us, what are we doing as a nation?

Signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1997, the Children’s Health Insurance Program provides coverage to children in low- to moderate-income families and to pregnant women. The percentage of uninsured children in America dropped from 14 percent when the program started to 4.5 percent in 2015.

Congress last reauthorized the program in 2015 and was due to do so again by September 30, 2017. Except this time around, congressional leaders let that deadline pass. And while states contribute some money to the program, it is primarily funded by the federal government, which means its money will soon start to run out.

Reasons for signing

  • Saints Let make Change God World !!! Peacelovelife23
  • There are a lot of Children out there, who need this program.
