Topic: Universal health care

Category: Multimedia

What is it?: A clip of President Obama’s call for congress to act on universal health care.

Publication information:, February 25, 2009.

ACORN; American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees; Americans United for Change; Campaign for America’s Future; Center for American Progress Action Fund; Campaign for Community Change; Children’s Defense Fund Action Council;; NAACP; National Council of La Raza; National Education Association; National Women’s Law Center; Service Employees International Union; United Food and Commercial Workers; USAction and Working America.

Listed above are all of HCAN’s major partners. You can find the complete list of the organization’s partners here.

Audience and Agenda: Health Care for America Now (HCAN) is a section 501(c)(4) issue advocacy organization. Members of the HCAN group include a wide range of nonprofit and political organizations that are working together to promote quality, affordable health care to all Americans. HCAN is related to Health Care for America Education Fund, a project of the Tides Center, a section 501(c)(3) public charity.

Usefulness: HCAN is an organization that is devoted to promoting universal health care to all Americans. It’s joined by nonprofit, charitable, and political organizations that believe Americans benefit from healthy communities, where all Americans can have affordable health care and choose the right provider for them. This web site was useful to me, however, there is a whole other side to this situation and they are not stating any of the consequences if the U.S. government does provide universal health care to all Americans. I think we all need to see the big picture, not just one side of the spectrum.
