31. Kennedy
used this bill written by Kerry, which he co-sponsored.

Now you can't argue that Kerry didn't write the bill, Kennedy didn't co-sponsor it and that 1996 doesn't predate 1997.


Senator Kerry was there at the beginning of the fight to provide the largest investment in childrens health care since the creation of Medicaid. His 1996 bill, the Healthy Children, Family Assistance Health Insurance Program, was the precursor to the successful SCHIP program, which became law in 1997 and provides funding to cover 5 million children.
