Ken Davis is joined by Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle for a conversation about the dramatic effect repeal of the Affordable Care Act would have on County health services. More than 480,000 individuals have obtained health insurance through the Act, or about ten percent of the county’s entire population. Replacing the services currently covered by the ACA would cost County taxpayers more than $300 million annually, she argues. Preckwinkle also discusses crime issues, including her opposition to the efforts to pass legislation increasing penalties for illegal gun possession and her concern that reform of the Chicago Police Department may stall without strong mayoral leadership.
