AARP and AMA to President Bush, 'Don't Veto Kids' Health'
Date:9/27/2007

WASHINGTON, Sept. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AARP, representing more than 39 million Americans 50-plus, and the American Medical Association (AMA), the nation's largest physician group, together strongly urged President Bush today to sign CHIP, a bipartisan bill that would ensure that nearly 10 million children get the health care they need. The President has made public statements announcing his intent to veto this legislation.

AARP and AMA are not alone. Groups including the nation's governors, private insurers -- and a vast majority of Americans -- overwhelmingly support strengthening the successful kids health insurance program. Further, the bill passed both the House and the Senate by wide, bipartisan majorities -- one of the few pieces of legislation to do so in Washington's partisan atmosphere.

The AARP and AMA urged the President not to be taken in by the rhetoric of the few members of Congress who opposed the bill. In their letter they state, "And, contrary to much misinformation, the bill focuses the program on serving low-income kids who are U.S. citizens. The legislation does not increase income eligibility limits, nor does it provide for coverage of illegal immigrants.

"This is not a debate about government versus private insurance -- both will be part of any real solution to our nation's growing health care crisis. It is about ensuring that we do right by our children so that they can grow into healthy, productive adults."

The full text of the letter follows:

September 27, 2007

Dear Mr. President

On behalf of the American Medical Association and AARP, we strongly urge you to sign the bipartisan Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act that will soon be on your desk.

This legislation will strengthen the successful CHIP pr
