CED Challenges Business and Congress to Support a Fundamental Restructuring of the U.S. Health Care

Washington, D.C. October 19, 2009 - CED today sent an open letter to Members of Congress and the Business Roundtable urging comprehensive reform of the U.S. health care system - reaching beyond what the Congress and major business lobbies have supported thus far.

"Good ideas like Senator Wyden's Free Choice Amendment, which would inject choice and competition in the health-care reform package, have not been seriously considered -- leaving only an expansion of the status quo," said William Lewis, CED Trustee & Founding Chairman Emeritus of the McKinsey Global Institute.
