Action 1: URGENT - Call on Rauner to Denounce ACA Repeal

Once again, Republican leaders in Congress are aiming to destroy the American health care system and they are hoping that Americans aren’t paying attention. The Graham Cassidy repeal bill is dangerous and we MUST do everything we can to stop this bill in its tracks. If this bill passes, the state of Illinois would lose $1.4 billion in federal Medicaid funding by 2026, rising to $9.26 billion in 2027.

Call Gov. Bruce Rauner and demand that he publicly oppose the Graham Cassidy proposal. Governors have proven to be crucial in building opposition to ACA repeal in Congress, but Rauner has been silent as the health of Illinoisans hangs in the balance.

Call Rauner: Springfield: 217-782-0244 | Chicago: 312-814-2121

Script: Hi, my name is _____________ from zip code ____. I'm a registered voter and a member of Indivisible Chicago. I'm calling to ask Governor Rauner to publicly opposed the latest attempt at repealing ACA. The Graham-Cassidy bill would gut Medicaid in Illinois and hundreds of thousands of Illinois residents would lose their insurance. We need to governor to speak out against this terrible bill.
