Beware the “Health Care Future”

If you watch any television at all, you’ve probably seen them.  Advertisements from Orwellian-named front groups attacking Medicare for All at the federal level and the Colorado Public Option at the state level.  Who are the “Partnership for America’s Health Care Future” and “Colorado’s Health Care Future” and what is their goal?  These are corporate special interest groups that comprise health insurers, hospitals, big pharma, and more that are all collaborating to kill any attempt at health care reform that would threaten a dime of their profits, all at our expense.

We will be working to break down their deceptive but blatant lies for you, one-by-one.  If you see a commercial, print ad, email, or other garbage from these terrible front groups, please let us know!  Help us be our eyes and ears!  Also, if you have any interest in working on a special communications project related to this, please let Nathan know via email.

 
Help us with outreach by answering a few simple questions about social media
We are preparing to implement a bold and strategic communications plan this year to help education, outreach, and the political will for health care reform.  Before we do, we would like to know a little bit about your social media habits to help us understand where to focus our efforts.  This VERY SHORT SURVEY only takes a few minutes to complete. Will you answer a few questions to help us achieve Improved Medicare for All?

Health Care for All Colorado is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit advocacy organization and relies entirely on the contributions of volunteers and supporters like you to carry out our mission.  Please consider becoming a member and making a contribution to support a worthy cause.

Health Care Is A Human Right!
