With Health Care Under Siege In Washington – Where Is Bruce Rauner?

Chicago, IL — Yesterday, Senate Republicans moved forward with their callous and reckless plan to repeal Obamacare without a clear replacement in sight – a move that could strip 32 million Americans of their health insurance. In Illinois, over a million could lose coverage, but you wouldn’t know that based on Bruce Rauner’s deafening silence.
 
Last week, right after the bill appeared to be dead, Rauner bravely stepped forward to say that he was ‘concerned,’ but he hasn’t uttered a word since. With the repeal efforts clearly alive and well, we must ask again: What is Bruce Rauner doing to protect Illinoisans’ health care?
 
“The health care of over a million Illinoisans is under siege in Washington, and Bruce Rauner is nowhere to be found,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh. “Illinoisans deserve a governor who will stand up to Donald Trump and protect health care for children and families. Instead, we have a spineless governor who won’t even say Trump’s name. It's time to focus, Bruce, focus.”
