treatments but who may lack the political power to influence the reviewers' decisions.

Because of these "six fatal flaws," Moffit said, "the Consensus Group believes that the industrial age, top-down proposals put forth by the administration and congressional leaders would undermine choice, competition and innovation in our health care system, rather than improve it."

The group is comprised of health policy experts from the American Enterprise Institute, the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest, the Ethics and Public Policy Center, the Galen Institute, The Heritage Foundation, the Independence Institute, the Institute for Policy Innovation, the Institute for Research on the Economics of Taxation, the National Center for Policy Analysis, the Pacific Research Institute. The members insist that health reforms can and must expand personal freedom and improve the quality of American medical care through competition and innovation.

The statement notes that President Barack Obama has articulated much the same goals. During the campaign he pledged: "If you've got health care already, you can keep your plan if you are satisfied with it. You can keep your choice of doctor."

Echoing the group statement, Moffit added, "We believe a better functioning, more competitive and transparent marketplace would cover more people and deliver the higher-value care Americans seek."
