The Health Care Industry Attacks Medicare for All

WOW: The greedy for-profit health care industry is ghostwriting anti-Medicare for All op-eds for elected officials.

Last week we wrote to you about the Partnership for America’s Health Care Future, a shady dark money group hellbent on preserving corporate profits, no matter the cost in human misery. Then we went to work and uncovered evidence that PAHCF’s lobbyists are feeding more than talking points to state lawmakers―they’re writing public statements.

The Washington Post ran with what we found, and discovered even more fraud. Here’s the story everyone’s talking about:1

This reporting was due to Medicare for All NOW! issuing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests of various state lawmakers, confirming what we suspected. They were parroting health care industry talking points because their op-eds were actually written by the for-profit health care industry.

Medicare for All NOW! was founded to fight back against lobbyist efforts to kill health care reform. We’re here to represent the American people, not greedy corporations that put their financial bottom line ahead of our health.

Donate to Medicare for All NOW! to hold the health care industry and their lobbyists accountable to the American people; and to demand a Medicare for All system that eliminates out-of-pocket expenses such as co-pays and deductibles, and includes hearing, vision and dental.

This attempt by the for-profit health care industry to show “wide spread” support for our broken health care system shows how they’ll go to any lengths to protect their profits. And this report is getting major attention on the state and national level.

None of this reporting would have been possible without our work, together, holding the greedy health care industry to account.

Donate to Medicare for All NOW! to fight back against health care industry lobbyists and their Astroturf campaign to kill Medicare for All.

Thank you for all that you do,

Wendell Potter
Medicare for All NOW!
