Change to Win Statement on White House Health Care Forum
Date:3/5/2009

WASHINGTON, March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Change to Win chair Anna Burger issued the following statement about today's White House Forum on Health Reform, which was attended by various Change to Win leaders.

"There are few challenges we face as a nation that are as complex and consequential as fixing our health care system. With 14,000 more Americans losing their health coverage every day, we can no longer turn a blind eye to solving a difficult problem. Instead, we must work together to make the big reforms necessary to bring about real solutions and deliver quality, affordable health care for every man, woman and child in America.

"Today's meeting underscores the Obama Administration's commitment to making health care reform a top priority for our nation. For too long, unsustainable health care costs have drained our federal budget and endangered the financial security of working families. As our nation faces the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression, it is clear that we cannot restore the economy without fixing our broken health care system.

"Change to Win looks forward to continuing today's efforts and working with the President, Democrats and Republicans, businesses and workers to help find real solutions that achieve comprehensive health care reform and put the American Dream back within reach for all working families."
