I'm Hillary's Internet Director. I just received a rough, partial transcript of Hillary's remarks about Graeme Frost and wanted to share them with you. I'll post the full transcript as soon as it's available.
HILLARY: "It pains me that in our country we have 9 million children without health insurance and now we have a President who doesn't think they need health insurance. I thought I'd seen the depth of political partisanship and mean spiritedness but the Republicans and their right wing allies have really taken the cake this time.
There was a young boy who was 12 years old named Graeme Frost. He was in a bad car accident and he didn't have health insurance but thankfully he had a program that I helped start in 1997 with Ted Kennedy and others called SCHIP. So Graeme was able to get health care, good health care, that made a tremendous difference in the outcome of his injuries. So when the President vetoed the extension of SCHIP, Graeme and his family stepped forward to illustrate why it was so important....
And boy the whole Republican and right wing attack machine went into overdrive. And they said 'well, they have a house' – yeah, I guess they could sell their house to give their child insurance.
I don't mind if they pick on me. They've done it for years. I think I've proven I can take care of myself. But George Bush and the Republicans should lay off Graeme Frost and all the other millions of American children getting their insurance from SCHIP."
UPDATE: I'm still working on getting a complete transcript. In the interim, here's a clip of Hillary discussing Graeme Frost posted on Think Progress.
