Former senators tackle health issues
AP/Yahoo News, April 17, 2008
Former Senate majority leaders Bob Dole, George Mitchell, Tom Daschle, and Howard Baker will craft a series of health policy recommendations that will be delivered in 2009 to a new president and Congress. Prior to making the recommendations, the senators will each oversee forums on four key pillars for reform: improving quality and value, improving access, ensuring a strong role for consumers, and finding a way to finance it. The project will be funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
