house Bill H.R. 3922

Reauthorizing the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) & the Community Health Centers Program

Argument in favor

Funding for CHIP should be reauthorized for five years, while the Community Health Centers program and other public health programs are extended for two years — both with slight reforms. They play a critical role in delivering cost-effective care and improving health outcomes for families and children.

This should be the top priority for Congress. Nothing matters more than the health and well-being of innocent kids, or all citizens of this country for that matter.

Argument opposed

CHIP and the Community Health Centers program and other public health programs should be reauthorized, but the funding shouldn’t be offset by shortchanging the Prevention and Public Health Fund, ending Medicaid eligibility for lottery winners, or cutting Medicare subsidies to wealthy seniors.

Seriously? The funding for community health centers should be reauthorized, but it shouldn’t be tied to reduced funding for other healthcare programs. Republicans need to stop playing partisan games, and actually do their jobs and fund these programs without strings attached.

CHIP must be reauthorized but this should not be tied to Medicare cuts. Please DO NOT vote for cuts to MEDICARE, MEDICAID, or other community health initiatives. Thank you.

Stop bundling fluff into other laws. A law should be straight forward and address one topic. Stop hiding a second agenda in the background.

    Republican's turned what should have been a great thing into an abomination. Thousands will lose health coverage with their addition of cuts to public health programs. More sleazy tactics that hurt the less fortunate of Americans.

    I vote NAY on partisan offsets to community health because it erodes Obamacare. This bill APPEARS well-intentioned but really isn’t. Never trust a republican congressman.

    It is unconscionable that it has taken congress this long to vote to reauthorize CHIP. But the GOP needs to stop attaching strings to this program in their efforts to destroy the ACA and other social safety net programs.

    Reaurhorize, but do not tie to reduced funding elsewhere. Stop treating healthcare like an expense item and treat it like an investment with a positive ROI—that’s what it is.

    I say again that the federal government has no role in healthcare. Currently there are trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities for Medicaid and Medicare. Time to end programs like this and put healthcare back into the hands of the people. This is another get free stuff program but we all know nothing is ever free.
