How our health care system succeeds or fails fundamentally affects each of us. No leader in either the public or private sector can afford to avoid this problem any longer. Large and small businesses, government at every level, as well as their employees and retirees, are facing the crush of health care costs and the threat of losing both the quality of life and the coverage they expect. The new Administration has rightly focused attention on the importance of reducing the growth of spending in health care, making both its availability and cost more predictable and manageable.
