Your Political Action Committee (PAC) is Your Future

The phrase talk is cheap is more than just a cliché in today’s society. It is the way the world, especially politics, operates. Your legislators are in a very difficult position. They are receiving messages from hundreds of healthcare providers, including physical therapists, chiropractors, OTs and MDs. Legislators receive conflicting arguments on a daily basis: one side presenting their argument on an issue, the other side giving opposing facts on the same issue, with each side believing that they are correct and that the other group is woefully misinformed or trying to get away with something. By financially supporting candidates that understand the issues surrounding the practice of physical therapy we assure a thriving presence in the State Capitol.
