Who’s behind the massive disinformation campaign to kill Medicare for All?

Who’s behind the massive disinformation campaign to kill Medicare for All?

It’s not just the greedy insurance and pharmaceutical industries. Recent reporting shows that the for-profit hospital industry is just as concerned about protecting their investors’ profits―effectively putting the incomes of the rich over the health of the American people.[1]

And the man behind this propaganda campaign has a long history with both the insurance and for-profit hospital industry. 😈 Chip Kahn, CEO of the Federation of American Hospitals, is best known for the “Harry and Louise” commercials in the 1990s that helped sink the Clinton health care reform effort.

😈 Chip Kahn

He was also involved in killing the so-called “public option” from the Affordable Care Act.

I’ve known Chip for years. Back when I was part of communications efforts of the health insurance industry, Chip was the head of the Health Insurance Association of America. Now, he’s switched from for-profit insurance to for-profit hospitals. But he’s singing the same  tune.

In his new role, Chip has taken credit for the creation of the dark-money group, the Partnership for Americans Health Care Future , whose membership boasts dozens of health insurance, pharmaceutical and investor-owned for-profit hospitals who are funding the anti-Medicare for All campaign.

As you read this, the Partnership is running attack ads on Facebook targeting Medicare for All in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. They are trying to scare Democratic voters toward supporting candidates who do not back full-blown Medicare for All.

We know Chip's strategy of fearmongering. And we must defeat it in order to pass Medicare for All NOW!
