Tools you can use

Action #1: Sign the petition to tell Governor Rauner to speak out for Medicaid and stop giving cover to the Illinois Republican Congressmen

This is an easy one. It take what, seven seconds to sign a petition? This is not a petition to get your email and add it to a list. It's just signing a petition to ask Governor Rauner to speak out against slashing medicaid. It's about protecting children and the elderly. This is important. Please sign and share.

Actions #2: Tell us you're going to the Rally to Save ACA at the Thompson Center at Noon on Wednesday, June 28th and share the event

We are rallying to ask Governor Rauner to stop giving cover to the spineless Republican Congressmen who voted for this heinous bill. There is nothing more important going on right now. This is life or death for millions of Americans. We have to fight. Join us at the Thompson center where we will call for Governor Rauner to forget about the 6.6 million dollars he will save with his potential tax cut and stand up for his constituents.

Action #3: Volunteer to phone bank at one of the SEVEN phone banking sessions Indivisible Chicago has set up to call Ohio and Maine Republican Senators

We have so many phone banking sessions! In an absolutely amazing effort, Indivisible Northwest has worked to acquire numbers of friendly democrats in Ohio and Maine and we will ask them to call their Senators. This allows us to influence Republican Senators in other states. Join us and fight.

Action #4: Call your Senators and ask them to fight

Call your Senators. Seriously, did you think I wasn't going to tell you to call Durbin and Duckworth? It's what we do. Strengthen their spine. Let them know that the more they fight, the more we support them.

Why Today's Actions Are Important

Action #1: Sign the petition to tell Governor Rauner to speak out for Medicaid and stop giving cover to the Illinois Republican Congressmen

Here's the text of what we are sending to the Governor. Be sure to sign.

Gov. Bruce Rauner has failed to offer any kind of substantive comment on the disastrous Republican health care plan. TrumpCare would eliminate coverage for 650,000 Illinois families on Medicaid, increase premiums for middle class families, remove protections for people with preexisting conditions, destroy an estimated 46,000 jobs in Illinois, and blow a $40 billion hole in our already decimated state budget. As TrumpCare destroys coverage for working families, the plan gives Rauner a $6.6 million tax cut per year.

While other governors from his own party have the courage to speak out, Gov. Rauner continues his shameful silence on TrumpCare. Gov. Rauner should put the people of Illinois ahead of his personal $6 million tax cut.

Take a stand, governor, before it is too late.

Actions #2: Tell us you're going to the Rally to Save ACA at the Thompson Center at Noon on Wednesday, June 28th and share the event

RED ALERT - WE NEED ALL AMERICANS WHO BELIEVE IN PROTECTING THE ELDERLY, THE DISABLED, CHILDREN AND THE POOR TO SHOW UP AND DEMAND RAUNER TO DEFEND OUR STATE.

Governor Rauner has been silent on AHCA, and this silence speaks volumes. He can not be allowed to get away with sitting on the sidelines while his Republican allies in Congress vote to give him a 6.6. million dollar tax cut at the expense of children, the disabled, middle class families and the elderly.

We will deliver a 5000 signature petition to Governor Rauner during the rally. Sign the petition and share https://actionsprout.io/1D7168

WE NEED EVERYONE TO COME OUT. Rally! Have your voices be heard! We demand that Governor Rauner speak out. We demand that he represent the people of Illinois who will die and lose their jobs without ACA. Join Indivisible Chicago and our allies as we rally outside the Governor's office and demand that our voices be heard.
