Chicago Sun Times: Shame on Illinois Republicans for putting party over the people

I am a physical therapist. I have cared for patients with cancer, diabetes, mental health, chronic pain and cardiac conditions. Many of my patients were uninsured before the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) because they could not afford insurance or because of pre-existing conditions. Before the ACA, many saw the emergency room as their access to medical care. Because of the lack of care, by the time they came to see me, their health had deteriorated. For diabetics, without preventative medicine and regular check-ups, this often meant the loss of a leg due to unchecked nerve damage and skin ulcers to the feet.
