Dear single-payer supporter,

Over the past 30 years, PNHP has built a reputation as a trusted source for evidence-based health policy, information, and tools for single-payer advocates. Each year, nearly half a million visitors access pnhp.org, including journalists, elected officials, physicians, and students. The PNHP website is truly the face of our organization, but has been in dire need of an update in recent years. 

Now, thanks to the generous support of our members, I’m thrilled to announce that PNHP has a brand new website! The site features updated content, easier navigation, and an improved layout that is much friendlier to mobile devices like phones and tablets. 

Key features of PNHP’s new website

  • Educate your friends, family members, and colleagues about improved Medicare for all by sharing our concise “What is Single Payer?” page. 
  • Review our detailed proposals for single-payer reform and pharmaceutical reform at pnhp.org/nhi and pnhp.org/pharma. 
  • Advocate for change by visiting our “Take Action” page. 
  • PNHP members can access our password protected newsletter archive and slide sets. Not a member? Physicians, health professionals and advocates are welcome to join today! 

Fighting back against single-payer attacks

You’ve probably noticed an increase in attacks on improved Medicare for all in recent weeks, including President Trump’s discredited op-ed in USA Today, CMS Administrator Seema Verma’s Halloween tweet, and the slew of outrageous political ads targeting Medicare-for-all candidates. It’s not just you: A report late last week confirms that the administration is using the popularity of Medicare for all as a wedge issue this election season. 

PNHP is fighting back with the facts, such as this op-ed from Drs. David Himmelstein and Steffie Woolhandler that appeared on CNN, “What Trump gets wrong about Medicare for All.” 

But our opposition is organized and well-funded. More than ever, PNHP needs your help to respond to these lies and organize a movement for real single-payer Medicare for all. Please make a contribution to PNHP’s organizing, research, and outreach efforts today. 

And then, go out and vote on Tuesday!

Sincerely,

Carol A. Paris, M.D.
President
