Pelosi: SCHIP Vote Brings Us One Step Closer to Providing Health Care for 11 Million Children
Date:1/14/2009

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke on the House floor early this afternoon in support of H.R. 2, the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) Reauthorization bill, which later passed by a strong bipartisan vote of 289 to 139. Below are the Speaker's remarks:

Over half a million jobs were lost in the month of December. 500,000 jobs were lost in the month of December. It was actually 526,000 jobs.

"Each month until we have an economic recovery initiative, we will continue to lose at least 500,000 jobs per month. With such job loss, Americans see the health care coverage that we all need for our children disappear. For every 1 percent increase in the unemployment rate, it is estimated that as many as 1.5 million Americans will lose their health care coverage. A record 47 million Americans, including 9 million children, are without health insurance now.

"Ensuring that children have access to affordable health c
