Local business leaders participating in Business Forward briefings rank health care as their top concern year after year.
Health care costs have made it harder for companies to raise wages, made our exports less competitive, discouraged workers from switching to better jobs, and crowded out government spending on education, infrastructure, and other priorities. The Affordable Care Act brought tens of millions of Americans into health insurance markets, addressed the problem of pre-existing conditions, and slowed health care inflation. Business leaders participating in our briefings offer specific, non-partisan, market-tested solutions. Local business leaders can keep health care reform on track.
