    LOL..... Yet, CHIP was one of the first things to be funded if the government did shut down.

    Congress provides short-term funding for CHIP - Dec. 21, 2017

    Them freaking republicans!

    The current state of CHIP: What happens next as the children’s health program runs low on funds

    ALISON DURKEE
    Dec 25th 2017

    Republicans in Congress spent their last weeks in session of the year focusing on tax reform — and their efforts, critics have argued, come at the expense of millions of American children’s health care. The Children’s Health Insurance Program, which insures 9.2 million Americans as of 2016, has been without federal funding since it expired Sept. 30. Though some short-term funding has been able to cover it through the end of 2017, a number of states will soon run out of money if Congress can’t renew the health insurance program quickly. “We’re going to do CHIP. There’s no question about it in my mind,” Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who initially helped create the program, said on the Senate floor in December. “It’s got to be done the right way. But the reason CHIP’s having trouble is because we don’t have money anymore.”

    Though Congress passed short-term funding for CHIP on Dec. 21 as part of a spending bill that averted a federal shutdown, the program’s long-term outlook still remains unclear — and children covered by the health care program may soon face the consequences. Congress will fund the state programs through March, though some sources predict the funding could actually run out by early February. The patch, however, did not provide additional funding, but rather redistributed existing unused CHIP funds to cover states that were running out of funding the fastest. The Georgetown study found, however, that the move was “rob[bing] Peter to pay Paul,” resulting in other states running out of funding faster. Though Congress’s newest influx of funding will likely help to mitigate the effects, states are already taking steps to prepare for their CHIP funding to run dry. Colorado and Virginia have already sent letters to families warning that their coverage may come to an end by the end of January, while Connecticut has announced that it will close is Husky B health program at the end of January due to the lack of funds.
    Them freakin Republicans couldn't give away tax-cut billions to the wealthy fast enough, but still can't fund the Children's Health Insurance Program that began running dry in September of 2017.

    The wonderful Orrin Hatch (R/UT) Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee complained: "We don’t have money anymore.”

    Another crock of Hatch/GOP crappola.

    September, October, November, December....

    GOP certainly isn't in any hurry to fund American children's healthcare.

    Now you revert to this nonsense.

    CHIP, is being funded, and will be funded.

    God almighty dude!

    Unsurprisingly, you apparently can't read very well.

    Then fund it Goddammit. CHIP is normally fully funded for 5 year periods. The GOP is the majority party in both houses. Yet they sprinted away on their Holiday break faster than Usain Bolt.

    CHIP is only 3% ($16 billion) of Medicaid, yet Hatch laments about CHIP "We don’t have money anymore.” after his Senate Finance Committee authorized a $1.5 trillion tax giveaway.

    Don't Play Politics With Kids' Health

    How about health care as a gift for kids — let's pass CHIP this season
