Out Of The Mouths of Babes

In spite of strong bipartisan and multigenerational support, President Bush today vetoed the reauthorization of the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). This program, which has made significant inroads in covering children, needs an urgent cash-injection if it's to keep doing its job. Families across the US are now looking to Washington for a fix. GU will be working hard to help SCHIP survive and thrive, for all their sakes. If want to help us fight for SCHIP drop me an e-mail, or better yet tell your legislators just how important it is.

Again and again, empty words become empty promises, the veto pen strikes again and all children are left behind! Why is it so impossible to realize that the very future of our Nation is at stake when we disregard our children's health and welfare?
Now if Haliburton had the contract for child care and well-being no child would indeed be left behind!
