About the Bipartisan Policy Center:

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.
