DNC: Romney Chooses President Bush Over Uninsured Children
Date:10/2/2007

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Smooth talking Mitt Romney is back in Boston today, one day after revealing more of his health care hypocrisy on the campaign trail. Asked by a reporter in Missouri if he would veto the Democratic plan to provide health insurance to 3.8 million uninsured children by expanding the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), as President Bush has vowed to do, Romney said "Yeah. Yeah, I sure would." Romney even said "It's unfortunate the Democrats used this vehicle." [Kansas City Star online, 10/01/07 http://primebuzz.kcstar.com/?q=node/7151] Romney failed to mention that, as Massachusetts governor, he himself used that same vehicle to cover insured children in his own state. The health care plan he championed and signed into law as governor relied on an expansion of the SCHIP program to expand health care to low income children.

Romney's new position on SCHIP may put him in line with President Bush and his failed leadership, but it leaves him squarely at odds with the American people. According to recent polls, 86 percent of the American people support reauthorizing SCHIP, with seven in ten saying they support the Democratic plan to expand SCHIP by $35 billion over five years. [Robert Wood Johnson Foundation release, 8/23/07; Washington Post, 10/2/07] Romney's decision to follow President Bush's failed leadership on children's health care comes as governors in seven states have filed lawsuits against the Bush Administration challenging proposed federal rules that would "force poor children to lose health coverage." [Associated Press, 10/01/07]

The bill Romney said he would veto would extend health insurance to 8,720 uninsured children in NH, 41,800 in SC, 26,400 in Iowa, 34,300 in Nevada, and 57,300 in his own state of Massachusetts. [Families USA, September 25, 2007]
