Our Issues

Consumer Watchdog's day-in, day-out consumer protection and advocacy work embraces a wide variety of issues affecting the daily lives and pocketbooks of millions of Americans.

Energy

To keep our society running, we need to fight for affordable electricity and gasoline. To keep our planet running, we need to aggressively pursue alternative fuels. Cleaner, cheaper energy is an essential victory for American consumers. Consumer Watchdog monitors the power and oil companies that too often stand in the way.

 

Healthcare

Consumer Watchdog fights to protect patients, improve health care quality and create universal care. We believe the health of patients should come before the financial wealth of health insurance companies, drug companies and other profit-driven health care corporations.

 

In the Courtroom

Consumer Watchdog's attorneys advocate for consumers' rights and seek to hold corporations and government officials accountable in the courts and before regulatory agencies.

 

Insurance

For more than 20 years, Consumer Watchdog has been the nation's leading insurance reform organization. We have saved consumers tens of billions of dollars, developed innovative consumer programs and reversed some of the most anti-consumer insurance policies in the industry.

 

Dirty Money

Consumer Watchdog fights to make your voice heard by calling out dirty politicians and attacking the influence of the special interests that keep them in power. We follow the money trail from special interests to policymakers and track bad public policy back from politicians to their donors.

 

Patient Safety

Consumer Watchdog fights to protect patients, improve health care quality and create universal care. We believe the health of patients should come before the financial wealth of HMOs, drug companies and other health care corporations. We work toward a safer, affordable health care system by eliminating waste, fraud and profiteering.

Privacy & Technology

Consumer Watchdog believes consumers have a right to control personal information about them and how — or if — the data is used by corporations.
