Fiscal Responsibility Summit

On Monday, AARP CEO Bill Novelli participated in President Obama’s "fiscal responsibility summit."   The President described the summit as an opportunity to "bring together a variety of voices on solving the long-term problems with the economy" and with a special focus on programs such as Medicare and Social Security.  After Mr. Obama made opening remarks, summit attendees were divided into five groups that would address: health-care costs, Social Security, tax reform, defense procurement and the federal budget process.  Mr. Novelli participated in the health care subgroup where he reinforced the need to reform the health care system to ensure that all Americans are guaranteed access to their choice of health care plans they can afford. 

At a round-up session at the end of the summit, the President called on Mr. Novelli to ask his opinion of how we can improve Medicare for our 40 million members.

Mr. Novelli spoke to media following the summit and underscored the need for health care reform.

AARP looks forward to working with the Obama Administration and Congress to reform our broken health care system and address other long-term fiscal challenges.
