Sen. Grassley says children’s health bill helps states reach low-income kids who are U.S. citizens
WASHINGTON — Sen. Chuck Grassley said the children’s health insurance legislation that is before the House and Senate this week would cut through red tape that’s preventing states from reaching more low-income children who are U.S. citizens.
Opponents of the overall proposal have said the legislation would cover children of illegal immigrants. Grassley said in a letter sent today to the House Speaker and Minority leader that such overheated and misleading rhetoric is a desperate attempt to defeat the children’s health bill.
“The Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act is carefully written to get the program back on track and serving low-income kids who are citizens of the United States,” Grassley said. “Any other assertion is unfounded.”
