Peter King Votes Against Childrens Health Insurance

King and 193 other republicans voted against the`Children's Health and Medicare Protection Act of 2007'.
HR 3162 To amend titles XVIII, XIX, and XXI of the Social Security Act to extend and improve the children's health insurance program, to improve beneficiary protections under the Medicare, Medicaid, and the CHIP program, and for other purposes is pretty straight forward with its intent on providing health care.
What does Peter King have against children getting treated by a doctor?
The stated purpose of the bill is to "... provide dependable and stable funding for children's health insurance under titles XXI and XIX of the Social Security Act in order to enroll all six million uninsured children who are eligible, but not enrolled, for coverage today through such titles."

I guess with his own congressional, taxpayer-funded healthcare, King doesn't care about uninsured children.
And that is just plain wrong.

Call Peter King and tell him he needs to start caring about those less fortunate than he.
