    Hands Off Medicare: How Congressional Proposals Seek to Undermine Medicare and How We Can Fight Back 

    SSW.pngWhen: TUES, Feb 21st, 7:30 - 9pm

    Where: Philips Ambulatory Care Center, 10 Union Square East @ 14th Street, 2nd Floor Auditorium

    Featuring: Nancy Altman, Co-Founder, Social Security Works

    In the midst of Congressional efforts to gut our public health care system, a conservative proposal to “voucherize” Medicare is now a real threat. In a voucher system, Medicare recipients will receive a lump sum of money to buy private, for-profit health insurance, undermining the defined benefit package of traditional Medicare, and exposing them to increased financial risk—all while guaranteeing more money for the private insurance industry.

    PNHP has long advocated for the improvement and expansion of traditional Medicare as the mechanism to implementing a national health insurance program. Nancy Altman, a national strategist with a track record of preserving and expanding Social Security, will share with us how we can fight back against these assaults, creating the political will to save Medicare and all our public health care programs, putting us on track to win improved Medicare for All.
