Republicans' plan to repeal health care would mean deep cuts to Medicaid, higher premiums for seniors, low- and middle-income families and rural communities, loss of protection for people with pre-existing conditions, and cuts to mental health and substance abuse treatment options�all to pay for a huge tax giveaway for big businesses and the super rich. Next year alone, the bill would cause hundreds of thousands of Illinoisans to lose their health coverage. This repeal bill would have devastating impacts on cities and towns across Illinois � that is why my colleagues and I are working so hard to defeat it.

Fellow Illinoisan,

Though the news in Washington is dominated by almost daily bombshell revelations about President Trump’s scandal-plagued White House, it is critically important for every Illinoisan to understand what exactly the Republican plan to repeal health care would mean for them.  That is why, earlier this year, I released a report – “TrumpCare: Less for More, An Analysis of the Impact of Repealing the Affordable Care Act on Illinois” – that details what our state stands to lose if President Trump and Congressional Republicans are successful in passing their legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  

Read my report to learn what Illinoisans stand to lose if Trumpcare becomes the law of the land.

After requesting information from every hospital, public health department, and major medical society in the state, the report summarizes how the ACA has helped individuals, families, and providers in all 18 Illinois congressional districts, and provides information on the increased out-of-pocket costs and number of people in each congressional district that stand to lose health coverage or benefits under the House-passed Republican repeal bill. 

Republicans’ plan to repeal health care would mean deep cuts to Medicaid, higher premiums for seniors, low- and middle-income families and rural communities, loss of protection for people with pre-existing conditions, and cuts to mental health and substance abuse treatment options—all to pay for a huge tax giveaway for big businesses and the super rich.  Next year alone, the bill would cause hundreds of thousands of Illinoisans to lose their health coverage.  This repeal bill would have devastating impacts on cities and towns across Illinois – that is why my colleagues and I are working so hard to defeat it.

Sincerely,

Dick Durbin
United States Senator
