Endorsing a Health Care Plan

Oct 16, 2008

It is great to see the issue of health care reform getting the coverage it deserves during this election season. I would just like to clear up one misperception we have noticed in the last few weeks. The U.S. Chamber does not endorse presidential candidates, nor have we specifically supported either candidate’s health care platform. As Tom Donohue, president and CEO of the Chamber, often states:

We stand ready to work with whoever is elected president, and we hope that any new president will want to work closely with us.

Neither presidential proposal on health care reform is perfect, very little in this world is. But the Chamber is committed to ensuring that we have a world-class health care system, and equally committed to working with the next Administration to ensure that the health reform debate builds on a foundation that works – the employer sponsored system.

If you are looking for a health care platform we do endorse, get a quick summary here, or read a more detailed version.
