Support SCHIP Renewal and Expansion
More Info at:
We, the undersigned, recognize the importance of collectively providing for the health care and wellbeing for our nations children regardless of their parents economic status and ability to pay. We believe that the SCHIP program is an important investment in our children because it provides healthcare rather than sick care and keeps children out of our emergency rooms the most expensive care.
In a nation of our affluence, the $40 billion cost of the program over the next 10 years amounts to only about a $13.30 per year contribution from each and every man, woman, and child a cost that we think is well worth it to ensure that innocent children are taken care of.
We therefore strongly urge you to give the SCHIP renewal and expansion your support, knowing that we do not consider $13.30 per year to be an unreasonable burden.
