Leading American Healthcare Experts Press Congress to Act Quickly on Health Reform
Date:9/17/2009

itals, Charles N. Kahn III, stressed the importance of quick Congressional action. "I'm gratified to join this eminent list of healthcare experts who recognize the numerous reasons for the Congress to act now on health reform," he remarked.

Health economist Stuart Altman, Ph.D., of Brandeis University, who advised Presidents Nixon and Clinton on health reform, stressed the importance of this moment.

"As an active participant in the ill-fated attempts at national health reform by both the Nixon (1974) and Clinton (1994) administrations, I know how easy it is for Congress to walk away from tough decisions and how devastating such actions can be for millions of Americans.

Judy Feder, Ph.D., of Georgetown University, said, "All of the bills before the Congress would take great strides toward improving the quality and affordability of health care for all Americans.
