Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote a thriving economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.
An affordable, innovative and efficient health care system is an essential factor in ensuring a better quality of life for all Americans and a more productive and competitive U.S. workforce. Likewise, stable and predictable policies that promote retirement security and economic growth help ensure a reasonable standard of living for most Americans in retirement and make the United States a more attractive location for skilled workers and businesses. Business Roundtable supports policies that will improve the affordability and quality of U.S. health care and strengthen retirement security.
