A press release from Congressman Randy Hultgren:

Hultgren Votes to Fund Children’s Health Insurance Program and Community Health Centers

Community Health Centers in Randy Hultgren’s 14th Congressional District treat 101,393 patients.

Washington, DC — U.S. Representatives Randy Hultgren (IL-14) today voted in favor of the CHAMPIONING HEALTHY KIDS Act, H.R. 3922, which extends funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for five years and continues funding community health centers and several public health programs for two years.

Previously Rep. Hultgren sent a letter to Speaker Ryan urging House leadership to reauthorize the CHIP program, and he signed a bipartisan letter and cosponsored legislation that called for increased funding to community health centers.

“Kids need continued access to the CHIP program, which offers affordable, comprehensive coverage to 250,000 children in Illinois alone.

“Community health centers provide vital primary, preventive and specialty care services to more than 101,000 patients just in the 14th Congressional District.

“I have been a strong advocate for both, and I am pleased the House voted to fund these important programs and services for the families and young people they serve in our district and across the country.

“They are vital parts of the U.S. health care system, and I will continue to fight for these programs in the future,” said Rep. Hultgren.

  1. More free government programs for the taxpayers to foot
    in the Sanctuary State Of Illinois.

    And what about parental responsibilities ?

    Better not say anything about that.

  2. Go big government! And a much smaller army…tic, tock, tic, tock…

  3. We need a BIG government program that provides EVERYTHING for our children.

    From the time of in-the-womb to age 21.

    Everything needs to be covered for children no matter the financial situation of the parent or parents.

    ALL food, clothing, toys, smart phones and monthly costs, all tuition and books, laptops through college, cars and insurance starting at age 16, housing costs subsidized for all parents.

    Its all for the children.
