SCHIP: Our Voices Are Being Heard

Bill Scher

This week, one million petition signatures supporting the expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program — thousands of which were collected by Campaign for America’s Future — were delivered to Congress by MoveOn.org and SEIU.

While this massive grassroots outpouring appears to have been completely ignored by the media, congresspeople are nevertheless feeling the public pressure.

The House is on the verge of essentially accepting the Senate version of the SCHIP bill, and the Washington Post reports: “The bill already has veto-proof support in the Senate, and opposition may be crumbling in the House.”
