Health insurance for children

As the national debate intensifies over health insurance, one group of Americans simply doesn’t have the voice to be heard: children. There are more than 8 million of them without insurance in our nation, and if Congress fails to fund an existing program, about 4.4 million more could end up without basic health-care coverage.
