Stop ObamaCare in Illinois Now!

Nancy Pelosi famously said, “we must pass the (health care) law in order to find out what is in the law.” Now that ObamaCare is law, the mysteries contained within are slowly coming to light.

While there is reason to hope that ObamaCare will be overturned by the Supreme Court, our state is taking steps to comply with the mandates laid out in the law.

ObamaCare requires that each state set up what is known as a Health Insurance Exchange. In theory, these exchanges will be one-stop online shops where individuals will pool together to purchase insurance.

Without a state-created exchange, the individual mandate cannot be enforced.

As in all bureaucracies, there are some major downfalls, not the least of which is the anticipated spike in the cost of insurance.

Establishing a state Health Insurance Exchange as dictated by ObamaCare requires complete submission to Federal Government regulations and the loss of state sovereignty over all health care issues. The law stipulates that:

“An Exchange may not establish rules that conflict with or prevent the application of regulations promulgated by the Secretary [of Health and Human Services (HHS)]”

The Federal Government will dictate such things as:

  • The Insurance providers that may participate
  • Minimum coverage that must be offered—potentially including elective procedures like breast augmentation and face lifts
  • How the exchange is run

I could go on, but I’m certain you recognize the theme. The Federal Government will control every aspect of our health care.

Our state has already accepted over $6 million to set up the exchange!

Merely accepting and spending federal funds requires absolute obedience to federal government regulations, and the loss of state sovereignty.

Governor Quinn recently suggested that he would write an Executive Order to institute the QuinnCare Exchange in the absence of immediate action by our legislature!

Click here to sign the petition demanding that the over $6 million in grant funds be returned and all contingency plans to submit to ObamaCare be abandoned immediately!

After you’ve signed the petition, please call Governor Quinn at 217-782-0244 and demand that he withdraw his plans for an Executive Order to establish QuinnCare.

There are over 1 billion reasons why some states are establishing these exchanges—and each reason has a dollar sign attached.

With over $1 billion at stake, and more than $700 million already sent to complicit states, it’s easy to understand why greedy politicians have their hands out before the court can rule.

These funds are being used all over the country to enrich political allies and the well-connected. Millions of your taxpayer dollars are being wasted, and you are footing the bill while they steal your freedoms.

Those hundreds of millions will never be returned to our treasury—unless you and I do something to force the issue now.

Tell your legislators that even if the Supreme Court fails to overturn ObamaCare, you expect them to protect your rights and jealously guard our state sovereignty by refusing to establish a state exchange.
