Reason #34

The Children’s Defense Fund Action Council has listed John McCain as the worst Senator for children. Why?

Here’s what he voted against (or didn’t bother to show up for):

1. Increase funding for children with disabilities (S. Con. Res. 21)
2. Protect children from unsafe medications (S. 1082)
3. 2008 Budget resolution (S. Con. Res. 21)
4. SCHIP Reauthorization (H.R. 976)
5. College Cost Reduction and Access Act (H.R. 2669)
6. SCHIP (H.R. 976 – motion to concur)
7. DREAM Act (S. 2205)
8. Funding child health and education (H.R. 3043)
9. Improving Head Start programs (H.R. 1429)

He also missed 80% of votes pertaining to children.

If there’s one issue we should all be able to agree on, it’s children. They don’t deserve to suffer for the mistakes us grown-ups make, and they deserve to have access to every opportunity we can give them. Votes like this show just how out of touch with the mainstream of America John McCain really is.
