WASHINGTON, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and Congressman Mark Schauer of Michigan held a press availability this afternoon in the Capitol with representatives from Easter Seals to highlight the urgency of health insurance reform for children with pre-existing conditions. Shannon Saunders Eaton of Ohio and Jessica Segal of Texas told their personal stories as a testament to why we must end insurance company discrimination against those with pre-existing conditions and disabilities.

Speaker Pelosi Opening Remarks

With their help, we had big bipartisan support for the state children's health insurance legislation that the President signed into law. Thank you to Jerry Mattimore, who is the Chairman, and to Jim Williams, who is the CEO. I want to especially acknowledge Stephen Mullen, a volunteer from the San Francisco Bay Area who is with us this morning, as well as others from around the country.

"It is really an opportunity for us to say thank you to the Easter Seals for what they do for our children, for the American people, what they have done ongoing. And when they decide to come to Capitol Hill, they make a tremendous difference. As I mentioned with SCHIP, and now helping with issues in our health bill that relate to people with pre-existing conditions. The bill is coming. It will be soon. And we believe that the more the public knows about how people with disabilities or pre-existing conditions are affected by the bill, they will be happy indeed. Every family in America is one phone call, o
