And sometimes, because of the severity of the situation, you have to say the truth.
From the generally very polite 100% Campaign, which includes leading children’s, religious, and community organizations:
Whether the budget proposal to eliminate (Governor’s) or cut (Conference Committee) Healthy Families is approved, the result will be the same: kids will get sick and some will die as parents are forced to delay health care until it’s too late because they can’t pay for it. Any proposal that leaves children without access to health coverage is misguided and will not solve the budget crisis as these children will be forced into more costly types of care. All such proposals should be rejected.
