AFP-Illinois will be protesting the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association to call attention to BCBS’s involvement in Enroll America, an “non-profit” organization set up by Obama political operatives to push people to enroll in Obamacare. Enroll America is the epitome of corporate welfare and political cronyism. Big insurance companies like Blue Cross Blue Shield should not be profiting from a law that hurts the economy, destroys jobs, and undermines the nation’s fiscal health. Government agents climbing into bed with “big insurance” to force people to buy a private company’s product they may neither want nor need, smacks of impropriety.
The protest will be held at the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association HQ (225 N. Michigan Ave.) at 11 a.m. on Friday, August 9. If you are interested in joining us please contact Joe Hahn at either 312-914-5284 or Jhahn@afphq.org.
