In advance of New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation Democratic primary, RootsAction is on the ground reaching thousands of voters one-on-one with our progressive message.
We’re distributing a new flier correcting the record on Medicare for All – against the distortions from healthcare profiteers and, unfortunately, from candidates Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden.
Our flier – which quotes physicians, economists and a respected New Hampshire state legislator – is headlined “Medicare for All. Not healthcare profiteering for the few.”
For months now, Buttigieg has been running disingenuous ads promoting the insurance-industry talking point that Medicare for All will deprive us of “choice.” But enhanced Medicare for All would give Americans the widest possible choice of doctors and healthcare providers. As our flier makes clear, it offers more complete coverage at less cost to consumers – by eliminating the exorbitant profits and massive bureaucracy of the insurance industry.
If you want to see Democrats resisting – rather than excusing – healthcare profiteering, here are two things you can do:
Our New Hampshire flier quotes NH State Rep. Mark King, who criticizes “public option” scenarios because they “benefit private insurance companies that can pick and choose who they cover. It would set the public option up for failure – and unfairly burden taxpayers – by inequitably shouldering the cost for those most in need of healthcare.”

- Read and share the flier (see “Background” link below) that we will be adapting for use in other early primary states.
And those programs would leave millions uninsured and underinsured.
Sadly, Joe Biden has also been using scare tactics – like this over-the-top tweet: “If you eliminate every single solitary soldier, tank, satellite, nuclear weapon, eliminate the Pentagon and it would only pay for 4 months of Medicare for All. 4 months. Where do the other 8 months come from? Your paycheck.”
Help RootsAction resist such propaganda. Whatever you can afford will help us reach out to voters in Democratic primaries from New Hampshire and South Carolina to California and many states in between.
When thousands of delegates gathered at the latest California Democratic Party convention, RootsAction was there to distribute our correct-the-record-on-healthcare flier. It was by far the most widely read handout at the entire convention.
