Blue Double Cross underway. Mission: Kill Health Care Reform at any cost
Insurers are gearing up for a major smear campaign to block the public option — the most crucial part of health care reform. Why? They are scared of losing business to a competitor that offers quality and affordable care without the hassles.
We must fight back with our stories - denials of treatments, choice of doctors, medications - of health care when we needed it the most. Go to our facebook group, 47 million strong for health care reform , share your story, and pass it on to everyone you know. Every story makes a difference!
