Finally, a call that isn’t about healthca- oh wait.

Now that it appears the garbage truck fire Graham Cassidy bill will not recieve a vote this week, we SHOULD be able to breathe a sigh of relief.

Unfortunately, our GOP representatives never miss an opportunity to disappoint us.  It seems the Children’s Health Insurance Program (or CHIP) is set to expire in a matter of days if funding is not reauthorized.

You know the drill:  get on the phones with all our representatives, and let them know we are watching, and capable of tracking more than one issue at a time!

Script:

Hi. I’m calling from [ZIP] to ask [NAME] to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program before funding lapses on September 30th. Millions of children rely on this funding. This is not the time to be angling for for partisan policy riders. Can you tell me what [NAME] is doing to insure a clean reauthorization of CHIP?

Thanks to our ally Jen Hofmann.
