Illinois House Backs Affordable Health Care, Financial Security as Top Priorities

(Springfield, IL) — As you know, difficult problems  confront the nation, as a people and as a state – but together we can work to solve those problems. Divided We Fail, a nationwide effort is focusing on the biggest and most critical issues–affordable health care and financial security.

The Divided We Fail campaign is assembling the AARP, SEIU, the Business Roundtable, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, and lawmakers from across the nation to find solutions to affordable health care and financial security.

To nudge the campaign along, I sponsored and won passage on January 8, 2009 of an Illinois House Resolution–H.R. 127–that commits Illinois lawmakers to break political gridlock that has, at times, crippled the legislative process and address health care and financial security here in Illinois to the extent we can.

The new General Assembly, the new Senate leaders, and potential change in the Governor’s office can only help move the process along.
