Tell Governor Quinn: We need a health exchange now!
Dear USAction Member,
On April 12th of 2012, Governor Cuomo of New York State signed an Executive Order establishing a health exchange, now is the time for Governor Quinn to do the same for Illinois.
We are collecting 2,000 signatures over the next 2 weeks. Pass this petition to your friends and neighbors. We need to show our support for healthcare.
The right wing is attacking us every day. It’s time to stand up again and fight for Healthcare for America NOW!
Sign the petition today - Call on Governor Quinn to issue an Executive Order to establish a health exchange.
A key provision in the Affordable Cate Act is the creation of health benefits exchanges in each state by 2014. These Exchanges will operate as a marketplace for individuals and small businesses to compare and buy quality and affordable health insurance.
The creation of an Exchange for over 1 million Illinoisans is no small task. The fastest way to get this done is through an Executive Order.
Help over a million Illinoisans without affordable health care today. Sign our petition calling on Governor Quinn to establish a health exchange today!
