Powerful forces representing the private health insurance industry, Big Pharma, hospital executives and organized medical groups like the American Medical Association (AMA) spend millions of dollars on PR campaigns designed to misinform the public about Medicare for All and to lobby public officials to thwart single-payer legislation.
The first step in combating misinformation is to become informed about what a national health program is and is not. That is why Health Care For All NC members stand ready to provide resource materials, speakers and discussion leaders for meetings of health professionals or the general public, including religious groups, civic organizations, business leaders, unions and others.
The provision of humane, comprehensive and equitable health care at a cost that this country can afford is within our grasp but we must have a base of knowledge in order to protect ourselves from industry lies and misinformation or the movement is doomed from the outset.
