Fattah Calls SCHIP Vote 'Major Stride' in Expanding Health Care

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) issues the following statement upon passage by the House of Representatives of the SCHIP children's insurance program by a bipartisan vote of 289 to 139.

"The effort to bring change to Washington by expanding health care for our working families and their children took a major stride today. I have joined with more than two-thirds of my colleagues in bipartisan approval of the long-overdue State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).

"This is the first step in overhauling our health care and health insurance system, a top priority of the Obama Administration and the 111th Congress. The legislation will provide health care for 11 million children of working parents, including four million children currently uninsured. And we can look forward enthusiastically to the signature of our 44th President, after similar bills were vetoed twice by President Bush.

"I am proud to have championed children's health insurance and health care reform from my first days in Congress and even earlier, in the Pennsylvania legislature. And we are fortunate to have, in our Philadelphia delegation, the leadership of my colleague, Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, a strong advocate for SCHIP and children's health.

"This is truly a new day for the New Direction agenda of our Speaker. I look forward to casting important votes such as the SCHIP vote today on behalf of strengthening and expanding the middle class of our nation."
