About John Dingell
Dingell has fought to get health care coverage for all Americans for decades. In 1997, he was one of the original leaders of the initial State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). He was the lead sponsor in the House of the SCHIP reauthorization that was vetoed twice by President Bush.
Dingell was one of the co-authors of the State Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization legislation that was recently signed by President Obama that expanded the SCHIP program to an additional 4 million children. He is also the author of two pieces of legislation: HR 15, The National Health Insurance Act, and HR 2034, The Medicare for All Act, to provide every American with health insurance.
