* Press release…
Today, the JB for Governor campaign launched a new statewide mailer highlighting Bruce Rauner’s abdication of responsibility when it comes to protecting Illinoisans’ health care.
While five GOP senators and three GOP governors are actively working to stop TrumpCare because of its devastating impact on their states, Bruce Rauner has stayed silent and hasn’t lifted a finger to shield Illinoisans from this assault on their wellbeing.
Devastating is a mild description of the far-reaching damage that TrumpCare would have on Illinois:
* 5.5 million Illinoisans would lose protections for pre-existing conditions
* Millions of Illinoisans’ heath insurance coverage would be jeopardized
* Over 600,000 working Illinoisans would lose their Medicaid
But instead of doing his job and standing up for the people of Illinois, Bruce Rauner is standing by and doing nothing.
“Bruce Rauner should be fighting tooth and nail against this devastating bill — like five GOP senators and three GOP governors have been — but instead, he’s doing nothing,” said JB Pritzker. “TrumpCare is a disaster for our state. Millions of Illinoisans’ coverage could be jeopardized and over 600,000 working Illinoisans could lose their Medicaid. So I ask Bruce Rauner: What are you doing to stand up for the people of Illinois?”
