Democrats herald report on healthcare costs

Wall Street Journal, November 13, 2009

Democrats heralded a report from the Business Roundtable on healthcare costs, saying it showed their legislative efforts would reduce employers' costs in coming years. The Business Roundtable, which represents the chief executives of major U.S. companies, released a report that stated that without changes to the current U.S. healthcare system, costs would rise to $28,530 per employee. But the "right legislative reforms" would reduce those costs by more than $3,000 per employee, according to the report.
