Fight for Families! - Protect Children's Programs

Right now Congress is failing to prioritize children's health and nutrition programs. Members of Congress are not putting our children first and making these issues a priority. 

The Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP) are federal funds allocated for children's BadgerCare. Federal child nutrition programs are ongoing efforts to provide school lunches, summer meals, WIC, and more to kids. These vital services are helping parents meet the basics for their families. Our representatives must support these programs.

We can do this, together we can provide a better future for our children and help parents care for and support their families.

ADD YOUR NAME - Tell Congress to put children first and fully fund children's health and nutrition programs!

    Children are innocent and do not know that they are living in poverty if they have shoes and full stomachs. They are our future and need to be protected and guided and when government starts cutting on their health and nutrition programs, it gives a bad example of how a country like ours is not supporting their citizens. These children cannot afford to work and carry benefits, nor should they have to worry about these things while they are growing up. We need to nurture them and protect them from harms way, and taking away nutritional programs that help them stay healthy is starting to look no better then the countries that are living in poverty and letting their children starve to death. Sometimes these meals are the only balanced meals these children receive, and its up to us as Americans to make sure that we protect our young. Take some of the wages from the officials that sit on the bench thinking of these budget cuts away, and make them go to bed hungry, or feel sick all the time because they cannot afford health care. Time to take back America and stand up for our own people and stop cutting budgets that feed America.

    I am a grandmother of 10 and I support these programs 100%. Shame on you government officials for even thinking in these directions.

    As a retired educator, I believe our nation’s children are our most valuable resource. If their needs are not adequately met, in all probability they will not be able to achieve their full potentially—-mentally, emotionally, & physically.
