Bill Kennedy and Denny Rehberg: A Clear Choice for Children’s Health Care


Representative Rehberg (R-White House):

U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg on Wednesday voted against a
House Democrats bill to expand the Children's Health Insurance
Program, saying it's based on an "extremist political ideology" to
expand government-run health care.

Rehberg, a Republican and Montana's only
U.S. House member, said he supports CHIP but cannot support the
Democrats' bill.

"They (Democrats) are pushing forward an
agenda of eliminating affordable, reliable health insurance from
private providers and shifting to an inefficient, costly,
government-run health care plan," he said in a prepared statement
late Wednesday.

Future Representative Kennedy (D-Montana):

Montana’s families deserve better! With the
average cost of a family health plan in Montana reaching $8,000 a
year, fewer than half of all employers in the state offer health
coverage. Many families can’t afford to buy coverage on their
own. It’s time for real solutions. The bottom line is this:
SCHIP sought to help uninsured children, and Denny Rehberg voted

Montana’s working families deserve
to be treated better than just the same old Washington rhetoric.

Bill Kennedy believes that children should have easy, affordable
access to health care. Dennis Rehberg, who is the beneficiary of an
essentially free health care plan that allows unlimited doctor
visits and requires no deductibles for his entire family, paid for
by your dollars, believes that it's "extremist" for the the
government to provide care for children. That's because he's
never had to face a sick child and tell them they can't go to the

Extremist to believe that the richest society in the history of the
world can't help children receive regular medical care? That shows
just how far out of touch Rehberg is.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we\'d certainly appreciate it.
