“With today’s bipartisan passage and President Obama’s immediate signing of the SCHIP bill, President Obama and Congress are demonstrating that change has come to Washington, and that we are moving forward to improve the quality of life for American families struggling during these hard times. This expansion of the SCHIP program comes at a time when a safety net for our nation’s most vulnerable children is more critical than ever. With more than 2.6 million jobs lost last year alone, Americans are seeing the healthcare they and their children depend on disappear. Helping to provide access to affordable health care coverage is an important step forward in improving economic security and quality of life for American families. Our work to repair America’s broken healthcare system and provide all Americans with the best healthcare possible is far from complete. But today’s expansion of healthcare to an additional 4 million children is a victory for American ideals and a major step toward a healthier future.”
