Headline: Lobbyist helped Ohio legislator on newspaper column opposing "Medicare for All"

Senator Bernie Sanders weighed-in on Twitter, sharing The Washington Post piece:

Our team at Medicare for All NOW! uncovered these examples of industry-crafted talking points under the bylines of state elected officials in an attempt to manipulate the public.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/12/02/state-lawmakers-acknowledge-lobbyists-helped-craft-their-op-eds-attacking-medicare-for-all/

As a former executive at the big for-profit health insurers Humana and Cigna, Wendell Potter knows the greedy health care industry’s decades-old playbook―used previously by Big Tobacco and the NRA―being used now to try and kill Medicare for All.

We’re working to expose the health care industry’s secret efforts to protect their profits!

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.
