Health Care for America Now (HCAN), a major campaign of Citizen Action/Illinois, is a national grassroots effort of hundreds of organizations and millions of people dedicated to winning quality, affordable health care we all can count on in 2009. It is up to us to make sure Congress acts this year.
The Illinois Main Street Alliance, also a project of Citizen Action/Illinois, is a coalition of more than 500 Illinois small businesses fighting for better health care options, including a public plan that will enable more small businesses to offer coverage to their employees.We can't trust the insurance industry with health care reform.
We need reform that guarantees:
· Coverage you can afford
· Comprehensive benefits you can count on
· Choice of a private or public health insurance plan
· Equal access to quality care
