Access to affordable and reliable health care is critical to the continued success and realization of the American Dream. It gives us the ability to provide for our families during our working years and enjoy the rewards of that hard work in our later years. Manufacturers understand that offering health care benefits to their employees is the best way to ensure a healthy and happy work environment.
As Congress works to reduce health care costs, they should focus on improving the efficiency of the current system and enhancing the quality of care. They should ensure reforms to America’s health care system are smart and effective, protect innovation and safeguard the employer-sponsored care on which so many manufacturing workers depend.
