11:22 am
can see with call in the pride that our democracy remains standing dignified and strengthened but it could have ended another way we were very close to traveling down another path that could have been deeply damaging for our political coexistence and our economy. a u.s. government program that provides vital health care support to millions of children from low income families got a temporary reprieve funding for the children's health insurance program at the end of september and congress approved a short term injection of funds on thursday but it still leaves the most vulnerable families facing an uncertain future christa salumi has more from new york. a last minute infusion of cash from congress will get providers like the ryan community health center in new york through the holiday season here seventy five percent of patients rely on some form of government subsidized health insurance money but medicaid covers the poorest families while the children's health insurance program provides affordable care for parents who make more money but
11:23 am
still not enough for private insurance congress has not been able to agree on a long term funding plan for chip just one of many uncertainties hanging over parents not only do we have problems with chip we have problems with community health centers not getting funded and that's that if we don't get the funding for that we know we're going to have to cut costs probably services as well the staff the umbilical hernia is getting smaller so i don't i don't think so a loss of services is a worry for sewell role who works in retail and could purchase insurance through his employer but doesn't earn enough to cover his one year old son very disappointing because if that happens what were we going to do. they should wide nine million children get their medical coverage through the children's health insurance program known as chip how the program is administered varies from state to state but one thing is universal and that is the need for affordable coverage
11:24 am
it's an incredibly important program for you know families who are oftentimes in transition maybe they've lost a job or they've gained a new job or divorce death of a family all those sorts of things can cause the need for children to enroll in the chip program and if the safety nets not there a lot of families just don't know what they'll do for late night t.v. host and father jimmy kimmel sprang into action when some states warned they'd have to end coverage in january i've had enough of this i don't know what could be more disgusting than putting a tax cut that mostly goes to rich people ahead of the lives of children in response to the public outcry congress provided a short term fix but with republicans and democrats still at odds about the future of health care in the united states the big decisions have been left for the new year christian salumi al jazeera new york. a u.s. jury has found two former south american football officials guilty in a case that helped expose
