Please read and pass along. The White House is looking for your input! (Click here)

Latest version of SCHIP legislation published for comment
On January 29th, the U.S. Senate approved the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009, better known as the State Children’s Health Insurance Program or SCHIP. Once signed into law, this legislation will continue coverage for six to seven million children and increase that coverage to four million more.

Since this version of the bill is expected to pass the House of Representatives in the coming week, we are making the legislation available for public comment now.

Here are the comments I made:

So much for economic stimulus. Increasing “sin” taxes is not the way to fund childrens’ healthcare. One of three children suffers from Child Obesity. How about taxing Energy Drinks, sugared Soft Drinks and Candy? Why can we bail out banks and car manufacturers, but not childrens’ heathcare? I guess the kids are not as important to Washington as they try to make us believe. I support the bill, but not the funding.

Let Obama know what you think…please post a message to the White House
