The New Democrat Coalition's Vision for Supporting Innovation in Our Nation's Health Care System (Released December 2011):
As New Democrats, we are committed to the successful implementation of health care reforms that will expand access to and affordability of coverage, improve quality and delivery of care and slow the rate of growth in health care spending. While much progress has been made in these areas, we believe that numerous opportunities and challenges remain. The following principles will serve as a foundation for a strategic direction for the Coalition on health care policy.
