In his address to the nation last night, the President said, "Now, none of us know exactly what's going to happen 6 or 8 or 10 years from now. Here's what I do know: If we don't tackle energy, if we don't improve our education system, if we don't drive down the costs of health care, if we're not making serious investments in science and technology and our infrastructure, then we won't grow 2.6 percent, we won't grow 2.2 percent. We won't grow."

The Council for American Medical Innovation, a new coalition of leaders in research, medicine, patient advocacy, academia, education, labor and business, are working in partnership to urge Congress to adopt a national policy agenda that facilitates medical innovation and discoveries in the life sciences. The Council is pleased that the President is making innovation a top priority, recognizing its direct impact on job growth, U.S. competitiveness and the health of all Americans.

"Americans are looking to the President and his Administration to encourage and reward continuous advances in medicine and scientific research as a means of improving quality of care and finding cures for the benefit of patients worldwide," said Former Representative Dick Gephardt, a founding member of the Council. "The future belongs to those who can create and sustain innovation economies, and we hope the President and Congress put policies in place that will nurture medical innovation, protect America's ability to maintain its global leadership position and help us find cures."
