CBO math just doesn't add up

The Congressional Budget Office does not score savings from prevention, but the facts speak for themselves. An uninsured child costs the community $2,100 more than a child with Medicaid or CHIP. And every 39 seconds, another child is born uninsured. We must invest in children now, or we will pay dearly later. Real health care reform means affordable and easily accessible coverage of all medically necessary services for all children, regardless of where they live. Anything less just doesn't add up.
