There is a better way.

As millions of Americans, including seniors, families, and small business owners suffer the impacts of failed national healthcare “reform,” many in Congress and in the state capitals are searching for a better way.

Who should make decisions about health care for you and your family – Washington insiders or you? We think you should decide. Let’s put citizens back in control by implementing the Health Care Compact.
