Diverse, Bipartisan Health Care Reform Voices Announce Agreement on Key Principles
Date:4/2/2009

Principles emphasize reforms that support economic opportunity

WASHINGTON, April 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hope Street Group, a bipartisan coalition of business, civic and policy leaders, today released its "Health Care Agenda for an Opportunity Economy," a core set of reform principles developed by its Bipartisan Working Group. The group is tackling health care reform because of the significant role it plays in the economy, accounting for almost 25 percent of all economic opportunity drivers. The working group, which includes long-time reformers and new voices, today sent a letter to President Obama encouraging that this package of recommendations be part of reform proposals.

Hope Street Group's Economic Opportunity Index (EOI) demonstrates that better health implies more capacity for work, but also more productive working years and a higher quality of life.

"We know in an Opportunity Economy, a thriving economic environment and fair access to health care, education and jobs go hand in hand," said Hope Street Group Executive Director Monique Nadeau. "America's prosperity and global competitiveness depend on it."

An Opportunity Economy is one in which economic opportunity is possible for everyone who works hard and invests in themselves, and where our nation prospers as a result.

The "Health Care Agenda for an Opportunity Economy" calls for a health care system that guarantees and enforces high quality health care for all Americans, realigns incentives, requires price transparency and is fiscally responsible and sustainable.

Supporters include Sen. Robert Bennett, R-UT; Rep. Jim Cooper, D-TN; Sr. Carol Keehan, president and CEO, Catholic Health Association; Jeff Korsmo, executive director of the Mayo Clinic Health Policy Center; Bill Novelli, CEO, AARP; John Pod
