From Health Care for America Now : Tell WellPoint to Stop Using Healthcare Dollars for Extremist Politics‏

1 post / 0 new

I received the following email today from Will O'Neill of Health Care for America Now asking for help in getting Wellpoint to stop using health insurance premium dollars to fund right wing political causes. Wellpoint has apparently been involved with ALEC, The Chamber of Commerce, and the Koch brothers (what a trio !) in opposing the Affordable Health Care act ("Obamacare"), and in the anti-collective bargaining fights at the state level in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, and other states. As a member of ALEC, they also have sent "model legislation" that is against health care reform to state legislatures around the country. That kind of activity should not be funded using the premium dollars paid by policy holders of Wellpoint.

Tell WellPoint to Stop Using Healthcare Dollars for Extremist Politics

Will - Health Care for America Now

HCAN Supporter,

Join us in calling on WellPoint to stop using policyholder and taxpayer dollars from Medicare and Medicaid to fund a radical political agenda that’s attacking our families.

WellPoint is one of the largest health insurance companies in the country. It operates as a Blue Cross licensee in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin. More than 30 million of us are enrolled in its health plans.

WellPoint is at the center of secretive corporate funding for extremist political activities. The company has funneled money to front groups to fight health care reform while hindering states’ implementation of the Affordable Care Act and backing the extremist politics of the billionaire Koch brothers.

Join us in calling on WellPoint to stop funding a radical agenda that uses the hard-earned money of policyholders to hurt them and their families.

Tax cheats stash $2 trillion overseas!

America's biggest companies are playing by their own set of rules. According to a recent report from two major watchdog organizations, our nation's Fortune 500 companies have $2.1 trillion dollars stashed in overseas tax havens.

To put that number in perspective, it's worth noting that the entire federal budget for 2015 was only about $3.8 trillion.
