It is still a hot issue - Children Insurance

To provide more coverages to uninsured children is very important to protect our future. The human being's future.

WASHINGTON — With children’s health insurance still a hot issue, a handful of Republicans, on the same day the House failed to override the presidential veto of a funding increase, provided a plan of their own.

U.S. Tim Walberg, R-Tipton, was among them.

The House last Thursday lacked 13 votes, according to the Associated Press (AP), for an override of President George Bush’s veto of a State Children’s Health Insurance Plan that would have increased SCHIP funding to $35 billion and added 4 million uninsured children to the program.
