Former President George Bush has agreed to serve as an Honorary Co-Chair of the National Coalition on Health Care (NCHC). He joins two other distinguished leaders who currently serve as Honorary Co-Chairs, former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald R. Ford.
“We are extremely pleased to have President Bush as part of our non-partisan effort to improve the nationís health care system,” said former Iowa Governor Robert D. Ray, Co-Chair of the Coalition. “In addition to President Bush, three distinguished individuals have become supporters of the Coalition, namely Robert Dole, former Majority Leader of the Senate, George Mitchell, former Majority Leader of the Senate, and Robert Michel, former Minority Leader of the House,” added the Coalitionís Co-Chair, Paul G. Rogers, former Congressman from Florida.
NCHC is the nationís largest broad-based, non-profit organization concerned about the current state of Americaís health care. The Coalition is comprised of almost 100 member groups, including corporations, labor unions, small business, and the nations largest religious, consumer, and health care provider organizations, as well as a number of prominent individual supporters. One hundred million Americanís are affiliated with the Coalitionís member organizations. The Coalition is rigorously non-partisan and is committed to the achievement of five basic principles in our health care system: health insurance for all, improved quality of care, cost containment, equitable financing and simplified administration.
