New TV Targets Kuhl for SCHIP

A new TV ad campaign this launched this week targets Congressman John. Randy Kuhl for standing with President Bush and against providing health care for millions of children. Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives fell short last week of overriding President Bush’s veto of the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act, legislation which would provide healthcare for 268,000 more kids in New York.The ad, titled “Bethany’s Story,” will begin airing soon in the Rochester market. It features Bethany Wilkerson, a two-year-old girl who was born with several holes in her heart. Bethany’s parents were unable to afford private health insurance, and only because of the SCHIP children’s health care program is she healthy today.The ad can be viewed at: www.usaction.org/schip.
