We're working on a project on C&L and we need your help. I'd love for you guys to make short videos about any problems you've had with your health care providers and send them to us at C&L. We'd like to put together a montage for Congress so they can see first hand how totally screwed up it is trying to pay for care even if you have health care in America. How many stories have you seen on TV that show us the problems Americans have with health care even when they have insurance and what they do to keep it. You won't find many at all. They think it's better for their ratings to show the infighting of the policy debate rather than show what this fight is actually about.
You can use Flip cam videos, laptops, computer web cams, cell phones or any other device you have available. We keep hearing from the conservative party of no that we have the best health care in the world and if we change anything it'll put the government between you and your doctor. It's just stupid right wing talking points to muddy up the waters to average American families, but the media doesn't investigate; they regurgitate.
The truth is that even if you and your family have health care, it's the insurance companies who stand between you and your doctor and they make it as difficult as possible if you have to deal with any other medical problem outside of a runny nose. We need health care reform badly in this country, but we need your help to expose what's really going on. How many specials have you seen on the networks that actually do in depth reporting on the relationship between you, your doctors and the health insurance companies? Only Michael Moore spent the time to put them under the magnifying glass and it terrified the Health Industrial Complex because they wanted their corruption to be kept in the dark.
Please send all videos to this email address:
If we get enough of them we'll be able to shed some light on the problems of actually being covered, but not getting the service you paid for or the service that has quadrupled in price the last few years...
