SCHIP Impacts in California…

Two good stories over the weekend spotlight the impact of the President’s SCHIP veto to California. Bill Ainsworth in the San Diego Union-Tribune and Barbara Anderson in the Fresno Bee report that potentially hundreds of thousands of children wil lose coverage, as well as the wrench it throws into our health care reform debate.

Beyond making clear the scale of the disruption, I tried to make the point in my quotes in these articles that there should be political ramifications, especially for the 18 California Congressional Representatives from California that voted against SCHIP.

Today, according to the San Jose Mercury News and the Washington Post, California is joining several other states, including New York and New Jersey, in suing the Bush Administration about their unilateral efforts to restrict SCHIP.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
