Baltimore family returns to D.C. to push health program
12-year-old records Democrats' weekly radio address; measure calls for funding boost
By Matthew Hay Brown | Sun reporter
The Frosts, the Baltimore family who helped congressional Democrats this week sell expanded funding for the State Children's Health Insurance Program, have returned to Washington for a repeat performance.
On Tuesday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, introduced Bonnie Frost and her 9-year-old daughter, Gemma, on the House floor. Pelosi described the family's reliance on the government-funded insurance program after Gemma and her brother Graeme were severely injured in a 2004 car accident.
This morning, 12-year-old Graeme Frost came to Capitol Hill to record the Democrats' weekly radio address. His comments on S-CHIP will be broadcast nationally tomorrow.
