AFP Launches Patients United Now & Tour - #AFP

Americans for Prosperity Foundation launched the Patients United Now initiative today, focused on educating the public about the threat of government controlled health care.
We are Americans just like you. We believe patients and doctors should make health care choices, not Washington bureaucrats. We know America needs real health care reform focused on delivering affordable, quality choices to all Americans. And we know that a government takeover of our health care will hurt American patients by delaying – and denying – critical treatments.

Guiding Principles We Support: Nothing is more personal or more important than the health of our families. Our health is too important to gamble on a system designed and run by bureaucrats in Washington, D.C.

As an American, you deserve the right to make all your own health care choices – and those choices should never be limited by government bureaucrats.
• YOU should have the right to choose the doctor that is best for you.
• YOU should have the right to choose who can see and keep your personal health information.
• YOU should have the right to choose what care is needed and best for your family.
• YOU should NOT be forced into a “one-size–fits-all” government-controlled health insurance system
If you agree, Join Patients United Now. Add your voice against a Washington takeover of your family’s health care and support real health care choices for every American. Become part of our team and spread the word. Help stop government controlled health care.
Patients United Now lunched a public service spot in which Shona Holmes, a survivor of brain cancer, addresses her first hand experience with government run Canadian healthcare system almost killed her. She was interviewed on Fox News --->
EVENTS Already Scheduled - More Being Planned:
Bring your family and friends out on the Patients United Now Tour and make sure your voice is heard against policies that will lead to a Washington takeover of your family’s health care, and support real health care choices for every American. Free food for the family, top-notch speakers, entertainment for the kids, and free blood pressure testing.

For many in D.C., cutting costs means cutting care – your care. Join the Patients United Now Tour - and let Washington know that a one-size-fits-all government plan doesn’t fit all because patients have different needs.
