Vote Kids urges the candidates for President to provide a detailed agenda of what they will do to promote the healthy development of children. We are concerned with the cuts being considered by the Congress. Just this past week, the House Appropriations Committee approved cuts to the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) that would force the program to turn away 200,000 to 350,000 eligible low-income women and young children next year. We believe these cuts will harm America’s children like Daniel and will impede their development and ability to compete in the future.
