New study from shows how low-income people's precarious work schedules make it hard to meet rigid work requirements. More evidence that work requirements don't work & take coverage away from people already working.

Medicaid is important for advancing health equity. Due to historical oppression of communities of color, children of color are more likely to be covered by Medicaid/CHIP. Every kid deserves a strong start, and having health insurance is an important part of that.

It's doesn't surprise me that covering adults through expansion leads to reduced racial disparities & earlier diagnosis and treatment in cancer care. What is surprising is that some states are still resisting getting their residents covered.

"We can tell you from talking to community, cost of healthcare is gigantic burden on Illinoisans. What we've seen in 37 other states w/this regulatory tool, they have lower premiums. Instead, on average, a family in Illinois pays $600 more a year." Dan Rabbitt

Replying to @SenatorFine
"This legislation will protect Illinoisans from discrimination in their rates. SB665 is a crucial safeguard from relentless harmful measures by the Trump Administration to roll back health care protections for women, LGBTQ+ people, and non-English speakers."
