Single Payer Pushback Survey
In July 2018, Healthcare-NOW did a survey of its members to find out what kinds of resistance activists most often encounter when pressuring a legislator or speaking with the public about single-payer healthcare. The survey goes through 13 different categories of pushback, such as “political feasibility”, “cost”, “focus on the ACA”, etc. Over 430 people responded.
With this information, we are in the process of creating a guide to legislator pushback that will help activists address the most common forms of resistance that groups face when lobbying for single payer legislation.
