Thousands of families rely on CHIP and we shouldn’t be diverting one dollar from this important program.”“This proposal is a shameful betrayal of children,” Senator Casey said. “This Administration and congressional Republicans passed a massive tax giveaway to their donors and big corporations and now they want vulnerable children to pay for it. This is absolutely unacceptable. I will continue to fight for CHIP funding and I hope Republicans will join me.” May 08, 2018center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img
