Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready collaborated with filmmaker Jesse Dylan and Wondros to produce this new video in support of the Affordable Care Act. Mike shares his experiences with health insurance companies while living with Crohn's disease and how Obamacare can bring relief to all Americans with a pre-existing condition.
“Before the Affordable Care Act, people with conditions like mine could be denied coverage. I know. I was denied twice, even being a member of a famous rock band,” said Mr. McCready. “The people who don't have those kind of resources, they are stuck, they have no choices. But now, we can’t be denied insurance because of something we can’t change—our illnesses. We have choices, we can be insured, and we can focus on having a life.”
Mike McCready and Jesse Dylan, whose son's ilness inspired him to be a healthcare advocate, are encouraging voters to seek out candidates who support the ACA and have started a petition of support for Obamacare to be sent to candidates for office.
