In his new movie Sicko, Michael Moore tells us that the United States is the only industrialized nation that does not offer free basic health care to all of its citizens.

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.

From SEIU:
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
taking action:

*** Be one in a million - sign the petition today!

*** Get more information about the campaign, read stories, and find out what else you can do to help.

Every child deserves health care. Please take action today!

Be the change.
