To Congress and the President:

More than 9 million children lack health insurance, and millions more have inadequate coverage in this, the wealthiest nation in the world. We must make providing health coverage for all children a national priority. Investing in children's health yields many benefits, including improved development, improved school performance, and long-term savings in health care costs.

We therefore call on the President and Congress to begin work immediately on legislation that will provide comprehensive, affordable, high-quality health coverage for all children.
