This week, House and Senate Democrats are unveiling two bold, ambitious, new planks of our A Better Deal agenda: A Better Deal for Our Teachers and Students, and A Better Deal for Our Democracy.1 #ABetterDeal #BlueWave2018 #DemPartyPlatform
Education is the catalyst for economic mobility, and the engine of progress in our nation. Yet, America’s teachers are underpaid, our schools are underfunded and our children are too often denied the good, public education they need to succeed. 2 #ABetterDeal #Education
Today, teacher’s wages are a full 17 percent lower than comparable workers – forcing nearly one in every five full-time teachers to work a second job to make ends meet. 3 #ABetterDeal #Education #Teachers #DemsWork4USA

The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)was designed to cover uninsured children in families with incomes that are modest but too high to qualify for Medicaid. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat #CHIP #ProtectOurCare
The legislation to create CHIP was sponsored by Senator Ted Kennedy in a partnership with Senator Orrin Hatch, with support coming from First Lady Hillary Clinton during the Clinton administration. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat #ForAll #CHIP
In 1997, 10 million children were without health insurance, many of whom were in working families with incomes just above states’ Medicaid eligibility levels. Since the enactment of CHIP, the %of children lacking health insurance has been halved. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat
