Distance

How can the same species (Homo sapiens) frantically pace back and forth and put themselves in danger to save a wild baby bunny from the California wildfire, but deny healthcare for sick children?

I believe the answer is DISTANCE.  The man saving the bunny could not stand by and watch the bunny suffer and ultimately die, while the people who vote against CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program) most likely have not met the children who need this coverage.

Maybe the legislators should be required to perform several hours of community service in hospitals or Doctors’ offices getting to know the families who rely on CHIP before voting.  Then they can make a truly informed and humane decision.  Maybe money is not the most important factor in decision-making.
