Tuesday Feb 21, 2017 - Defend the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)!
contributed by @TheRevLeague
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.
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.
Always use #ILsaveACA
Include the images below in your posts
Call Governor Rauner’s offices to demand he makes a statement in support of the ACA and against repeal.
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.
