Tymia McCullough fidgets in front of a mirror in her hotel room as her mom, Susie Pitts, puts the final touches on her hair and nervously drills her on what she is going to say when she gets to Capitol Hill.
"And this is where you let them know that Medicaid is what?" Pitts asks.
"Health assurance," Tymia responds.
"Health insurance that does what?"
"It pays for the need to see your doctor," Tymia says.
Tymia is just 11 years old. She came to Washington last week to lobby Congress over health care. Her family saw it as a life-or-death fight.
