About the Bipartisan Policy Center:

In 2007, former U.S. Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole, and George Mitchell formed the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) to develop and promote solutions that can attract the public support and political momentum to achieve real progress. The BPC acts as an incubator for policy efforts that engage top political figures, advocates, academics, and business leaders in the art of principled compromise.

About Better Health Care Together:

Better Health Care Together is a unique partnership of organizations, launched in February 2007, dedicated to four common sense principles for achieving a new American health care system by 2012. We believe every person in America must have quality, affordable health insurance coverage; individuals have a responsibility to maintain and protect their health; that America must dramatically improve the value it receives for every health care dollar; and that businesses, governments, and individuals all should contribute to managing and financing a new American health care system.
