Employers Launch Grassroots Health Reform Coalition
Date:9/1/2009

e need health care reform, but it must focus on private-sector solutions."

Along with the benefits of effective reform, several coalition members have first-hand experience with the consequences of poorly planned efforts. Massachusetts rushed through a major overhaul of its health care system in 2006 and now has the highest premiums in the nation.

"How can we expect to do for the nation what one state has not been able to do for its citizens?" asked Debra Boronski-Burack, president of the Massachusetts Chamber of Business & Industry. "Hasty action will impact our lives and the lives of our children's children in ways that we cannot begin to imagine."

The coalition opposes an employer mandate -- noting that most employers who can afford to provide health coverage already do so because it attracts and retains quality employees -- and new government-run coverage that would shift millions of Americans off their existing private plans.

In addition to legislative outreach, the coalition has launched a social media campaign to inform employers and employees about the federal health care reform effort. Follow the coalition online at www.employersforqualityhealthcare.org, on Facebook, or on Twitter (@stchmbrs4health).
