Action Alert: Protect Our Care IL


As you may know, Congress is on recess next week, so we have a real opportunity to hold our elected officials accountable. 


Republicans in Congress, along with the President, continue to publicly say that they are committed to repealing the Affordable Care Act. And they continue to not have a real plan to replace it. As you know, repealing the Affordable Care Act will cause over 1.1 MILLION Illinoisans to lose insurance coverage, and would cost a lost over over 100,000 jobs. Repealing the ACA - especially without a real replacement - will be devastating to Illinoisans across the board: consumers that rely on this health insurance, workers that rely on these jobs, and the State of IL that relies on the tens of billions of dollars of economic activity that results from that care and jobs. 


We need to let Congressional members know that we are listening, that we are watching, and that we want our voices heard.  


Below is a list of the activities that you can take part in next week.
