As you may know, the Supreme Court announced its ruling on the President’s health care reform law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  The Supreme Court decided to uphold the entire law, ruling that its individual mandate is a tax.  You can read through their decision by clicking here.

Simply put, our work to improve the American health care system is far from done.  Every American is impacted by the health care reform law, and will be affected by the Supreme Court’s decision.  We need to continue working to ensure folks in Illinois and across the country have access to health care that’s high quality, patient-centered, convenient, and affordable.  

I truly believe that the best ideas often don’t come from Washington, but from the folks in Illinois I have the privilege of representing.  I understand that your health care is very personal, and I want to hear from you how it can be improved.  Your input is important to me, and I appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts.

What do you think our next steps should be?  Please select as many options as you’d like.
  • Repeal it.
  • Immediately pass another massive health care reform package.
  • Take up-or-down votes on individual improvements to the health care system.
  • Meet with health care providers and patients to discuss different reforms they would like to see.
  • Work to ensure health insurance coverage for Americans under the age of 26 or with preexisting conditions.
  • Vote on legislation to allow individuals to buy health insurance across state lines.
  • Consider proposals to advance common-sense liability protections.
  • Look at plans to ensure seniors of today and those of tomorrow have access to Medicare.
  • Advance policies that lower health care costs and improve its quality.
  • Other.
