Congressional Republicans have stooped to a new low. On September 30th, they let the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) expire. Nine million kids, including more than two million in California, are about to lose their health insurance if Congress doesn’t immediately act.
We need YOU to do two things:
- First, sign this petition telling the 14 Republicans in Congress immediately reauthorize CHIP.
- Second, call your Member of Congress and tell them: “You need to reauthorize and fully fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program without delay.”
We checked the social media accounts for all 14 California Republicans in Congress. Their combined posts about this since they let CHIP funding expire: ZERO! They are hiding in the middle of a health crisis that directly impacts more than two million California children.
All it takes is a vote to renew the CHIP program, and the health care for nine million children will be saved. Democrats are all on board. It’s the Republicans, including the 14 in California, that are blocking a vote.
Tell Congressional Republicans: renew CHIP immediately!
