That's bad enough. But why do the children have to suffer for the fact that their parents may not have a job that provides medical insurance?
Please click the link below to sign a petition from SEIU Healthcare asking Congress to provide coverage to millions of uninsured children and bring America closer to quality, affordable health care for all.
It's America's great shame: 9 million uninsured children. They have no access to regular checkups, their parents struggle to afford doctors' visits when they are sick, and they often go without care.-----
Now Congress can provide health insurance to millions of uninsured kids by increasing funding for the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) by $50 billion. SEIU Healthcare, with one million health care members, is working with a broad coalition of groups to urge Congress to take action now.
Our goal is to collect one million petition signatures to Congress to make sure they hear us loud and clear: health care reform starts with America's children.
You can help millions of kids get the health care they need by
