Call / Write to Whitmer: No Blue Cross in our Government!

Thu, Dec 13, 2018 - 12:01am to 11:09pm

So, Governor-Elect Whitmer has place the CEO of Blue Cross, Daniel Loepp, on her transition team. This means he'll be picking the members of her administration. BCBS gave her a huge amount of money through their Blues PAC, and the two of them (Loepp and Whitmer) are close friends. This is highly concerning. It is influence peddling, and it means that BCBS will make sure its profits are protected, and Loepp will make sure his $13 million salary is protected, while we will continue to suffer high premiums and copays that we cannot and should not have to pay.

We are urging all of you to CALL and WRITE to the transition team now, to ask that Loepp be removed from the team, and that advocates for public option/ single payer, or representatives of National Nurses United / Michigan Nurses Association be place on the team instead. Even better, get some friends together to call and write with you!
