U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce Advocates Strong Healthcare Reforms in Support of American Values
Date:6/24/2009

Supporting individual quality of life and American business competitiveness through healthcare reform

WASHINGTON, June 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce submitted today a "Report to Congress" urging America's elected leaders to restore American values and business competitiveness through the support of strong healthcare reforms. Highlights of the report include the support of Health Insurance Exchanges, guaranteed access to affordable health insurance coverage, bringing an end to age and wellness discrimination, a robust government public plan, greater transparency and accountability, choice, flexibility, and portability of health insurance.

"We have heard over and over from our members how the escalating costs of health care are suffocating their businesses and creating great personal and family hardships," says Margot Dorfman, CEO of the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce. "The explosion of healthcare costs, failure to instill transparency in the health care system and inability of Americans to afford basic healthcare insurance is part of the current broader systemic business and financial collapse fueled by unwarranted and oversized growth of executive compensation, shadow banking, credit card fee and rate escalation and other spurious financial manipulation that has nearly ground America's economy to a halt."

The report details troubling statistics regarding the suppression of business growth, lack of access to affordable healthcare for women, crippling economic damage caused by America's healthcare crisis and details specific recommendations for Congress provided by the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce.
