A bipartisan group of state legislators, tasked with finding $2.7 billion in cuts to Medicaid and other programs, has agreed to $1.4 billion in reductions, including slashing Illinois Cares Rx. Governor Quinn plans for $2.7 billion in cuts to many lifesaving social safety net programs that retirees and seniors depend on. Call Governor Quinn at 217-782-0244 and tell him not to eliminate Illinois Cares Rx. Funding for Illinois Cares Rx was already slashed in half last year, disqualifying many seniors from the program. Illinois Cares Rx is an essential program for helping seniors pay for their prescription drugs.
Call Governor Quinn as well as your state senator and state representative and tell them to stop cuts to Illinois Cares Rx and other vital state programs: 217-782-0244.
