Dean Phillips To Moderate “Everyone’s Invited! Health Policy Forum” with Healthcare Experts
Free educational discussion to be held on Monday, October 1st
Dean Phillips will moderate a free and open-to-the-public panel discussion focused on health policy on Monday, October 1st at Normandale Community College. Phillips’s campaign for Congress is based on the idea that representation begins with listening, and everyone’s invited to join in this solutions-focused conversation with experts of varied beliefs and backgrounds.
Healthcare reform is an issue that dominates conversation on the campaign trail, and it is one on which Phillips and his opponent, Congressman Erik Paulsen, differ greatly. Congressman Paulsen is the sixth-largest recipient of special-interest money in all of Congress, having accepted more than $1.6 million from drug and insurance interests while voting repeatedly to repeal the Affordable Care Act and gut protections for pre-existing conditions.
Phillips, on the other hand, is a small-business owner who offers health insurance to his full-time employees, rejects all contributions from special interests, and believes that we should work to improve the ACA so that no American is one illness away from financial ruin.
