Get Involved. Demand Healthcare for All Children.

Have you ever co-sponsored a bill pending in Congress? No? Neither have I, until today that is, when I joined thousands of American citizens signing up as co-sponsors of legislation to provide healthcare coverage to every child in this country. The bill will be introduced in the U.S. Senate early next year by Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.).

Sen. Kerry, in an e-mail sent to supporters earlier today, wrote:

Normally, a member of the Senate will first approach other senators and ask them to co-sponsor a bill before it is introduced -- instead, I am turning to you. Imagine the power of a bill co-sponsored by hundreds of thousands of Americans being presented on the floor of the United States Senate. You can make it happen. Sign our "Every Child Protected" pledge today and forward it to your family, friends, and neighbors. . . . This is the beginning of a second term effort to hold the Bush administration accountable and to stand up and fight for our principles and our values. They want you to disappear; they are counting on that. I'm confident you will prove them wrong, and you will rewrite history again.

Signing up as a co-sponsor of Sen. Kerry's takes just a moment, and his strategy will send a powerful message to Congress of the real American values all of us hold dear.

Please join us and tell your friends to do the same.
