Demonstrating Bi-Partisan Support

An executive director of an advocacy group was given short notice to prepare for appearing before a government committee to urge continued funding for Medicaid. Her organization also wanted to prepare a press release which demonstrated that there was bipartisan support for this issue. Staff were unable to find materials from conservative groups arguing for support for continuing the Medicaid program.

Green Heron was able to quickly find documentation from an array of conservative leaning organizations such as the American Enterprise Institute, the Cato Institute and the National Taxpayer’s Union which advocate for the continuation of the Medicaid program. The full text, quotes and sources of documentation were sent to the client on a two day turn around.

The client was able to successfully incorporate these materials into her testimony and press release which helped reinforced the argument that this was a bipartisan issue.
