AUGUST 20TH, 2007 | Harkin for Senate
Just a few weeks after vetoing health care for American children, the president has again threatened to block investing in important domestic priorities here at home.
The Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations bill that I will manage on the Senate floor this week supports American families, invests in this country’s future and reflects our shared values.
This bill funds life-saving research, Head Start, support for K-12 education, home-heating assistance for the poor, mental health and substance abuse services, student financial assistance, job training, and a whole host of other critical domestic needs.
This bill takes care of our home front.
