Kids Come First

I received an email appeal from John Kerry concerning the Kids Come First Act which he is sponsoring. Take a minute and add your name to the list of co-sposors.

It is totally unacceptable that, in the greatest country in the world, millions of children are not getting the health care they need. That's why this week John Kerry introduced the Kids Come First Act. Help him push through the Republicans' political roadblocks and take care of the 11 million children without health insurance.

The Republicans will try to prevent this important legislation from ever seeing the light of day. Help John gather one million co-signers for the Kids Come First Act, and we'll force them to act or to admit that they just don't care enough to act. Here's why it's so important to do something now:

* 1/4 of children are not fully up to date on their basic immunizations.
* 1/3 with chronic asthma do not get a prescription for medications they need.
* 1/2 of uninsured children have not had a well child visit in the past year.
* 1 in 6 has delayed or unmet medical needs.
* 1 in 5 has trouble accessing health care.
* 1 in 4 does not see a dentist annually.
* 1 in 3 had no health insurance during 2002 and 2003.
