All Kids Program Goes To Springfield

By  | 

More than 400 organizations have thrown their support to the Illinois All Kids program. But the toughest crowd has yet to come.

Thousands of people turned out for a rally in Chicago Sunday for Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's plan to provide health insurance for every Illinois child. The Governor told the crowd he needs their help in winning legislative support for his plan. The proposal would offer state-subsidized insurance for children of families that earn too much to qualify for
Medicaid-funded programs but not enough to afford private insurance.
