Illinois Covered Plan Emerges

Illinois Covered LogoGovernor Blagojevich’s budget address provided more details of the Illinois Covered Universal Health Care plan to cover all uninsured in the state.

Are you pleased with what you’ve heard about the plan?

The Democrats have taken a state-by-state approach to health care during the Bush Administration because it was clear the Republican powers in Washington would not take action on this pressing issue. Do you believe the plans in California, New Jersey, or the approach in Massachusetts, where everyone is required to purchase insurance, are a success?

Or is it time for a nation-wide solution now that the Democrats have gained a voice in Congress and have a chance to win the Presidency in 2008? Barack Obama has boldly included Universal Health Care in his presidential platform.

We have a unique opportunity to learn much more about Illinois Covered next Wednesday at the March 14 Democratic MeetUp: one of the grassroots activists behind the Governor’s plan will speak about Universal Health Care in Illinois at Champaign Democratic Headquarters (click for details).
