Thank God for the Affordable Care Act!  I have an adult child with preexisting conditions. When he was diagnosed in 2004, I was told by the doctor to pray for universal health care. He knew this diagnosis would make my child uninsurable and label him as disabled.

That experience opened my eyes. Millions of people were being denied health care, just like my own child, for issues they had no control over.

The ACA is not perfect, but we cannot throw the baby out with the bathwater! We can work through this! Illinois can lead the way by protecting the rights of everyone to have healthcare!

Work with me!  We all need the security of high-quality, low-cost health care. Together we can make that happen in Illinois.
