Target: Governor Bruce Rauner

Four Republican Governors have come out against the repeal of the ACA, and Governor Rauner should be the 5th. Illinois has a lot to lose since our state expanded Medicaid under the ACA and receives millions of dollars in funding from the Federal government.

Social Media

Write a facebook post/tweet @/make an instagram post directed at Governor Rauner in favor of the ACA, especially its popular consumer protections, such as the ban on lifetime caps.

What is a lifetime/yearly cap?

It is a cap on the amount of money your insurer is liable to pay for your health care. Most people will not exhaust their caps in a year, but if you are diagnosed with a condition that is expensive to treat, such as cancer, you actually may exhaust your lifetime or yearly cap quite quickly and then be left completely uninsured. This can be deadly.
