McCready started an 'Obamacare petition' on SignOn.org and released a video asking people to pledge their vote for candidates that support the Affordable Care Act
In a video posted on Youtube, McCready shares his struggle trying to obtain healthcare while battling Crohn’s Disease.
“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 McCready. “I have met a lot of people who have been denied coverage who don’t have the resources to fight insurance companies…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.”
