Last year, the health care industry formed a non-profit called ‘Partnership for America’s Health Care Future’ (PAHCF), which is a coalition of pharmaceutical companies, health insurance companies and hospitals fighting against ‘Medicare for All.’

This week the group published a 2.5-minute digital ad, which will run on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as part of a three-week campaign.

While the partnership does support improving health care quality and providing more choices, they remain opposed to a one-size-fits-all Medicare plan. PAHCF supporters claim it would increase wait times and hurt competition.

Since the rise of Bernie Sanders in 2016, liberals have made “single payer” a mainstream, acceptable idea for all Democrats and the coalition is preparing for the lefts talking points.

“You the Republican Party have no credibility on the issue of health care,” stated Sanders.

“Medicare should be there for everybody in this country, it is time for ‘Medicare for All’ — universal health care for every single American,” stated Obama-era Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro.

As Democrats continue their ‘Medicare for All’ pursuit, those opposed are getting ready for another fight.
