All Kids would provide "comprehensive, affordable health insurance for every child."

Governor Rod Blagojevich hasn't exactly been making us Dems in Illinois proud. A recent poll puts his approval at only 36%. Ouch.

So it's not surprising that many are questioning his motives in revolutionizing the state's child health care system. Kinda like how former Gov. Ryan put a moratorium on the death penalty right before he was indicted, some say.

Whatever the motive, the fact remains that "All Kids Covered" is a "big idea" proposal of the sort we've been demanding from our party for a long time.

All Kids would provide "comprehensive, affordable health insurance for every child." Illinois would become the first state in the nation to implement such a broad plan.

Our state, like most states, already has a child health insurance program. KidCare currently has 1.2 million children enrolled. Under KidCare, a family of four with an income of just under $40,000 can enroll for discounted care.

But the Governor's proposal reaches out to middle class families, who are often forgotten and whose needs often go unchecked.
