Broad coalition decries healthcare dysfunction
Diverse organization such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and the Service Employees International Union are among the members of Better Health Care Together, a coalition formed to build support for significant, structural reform of the healthcare system. Members of the coalition, which also includes such corporations as Intel and General Mills, agree on some broad principles: Americans should have access to affordable health insurance; people have a responsibility to maintain and protect their health; the healthcare system must become more efficient, and businesses, governments and individuals should contribute to the cost for a new system. The coalition recently held a discussion on these issues in Milwaukee.
