Health care for children, Medicaid not top priorities

I'm so glad that our legislature keeps busy with "message" bills. What would they do without those? Hmmm, maybe talk about things that would actually improve life for the residents of Utah?

An article in today's Tribune says that funding to expand CHIP is likely to only get half of what Governor Huntsman wanted.

What will it take to convince our government to stop wasting time and money on morality bills (and I'm all for morality) when we have children and families who don't have access to health care.

Access to quality health care for all SHOULD be a priority, shame on our legislature for thinking otherwise.
