Fossella votes against providing children with health insurance

ChildrenÂ’s Health and Medicare Protection Act of 2007
Vote Passed (225-204, 4 Not Voting)

The House voted for this bill that would expand the State ChildrenÂ’s Health Insurance Program, adding up to 5 million children to the program.

Rep. Vito Fossella voted NO

Rep. Fossella is not one of the 12% in Staten Island who live in poverty and need this program. He also by way of his office in Congress has one of the best health insurance plans of any American. If only the poor constituents of his district were able to take $10,000 contributions from people like disgraced former Rep. Tom Delay (R-TX) like Fossella then this may not be an issue.
