The PHCC is asking its members to jump into the health care debate with its “Health Care Action Pack.” This online tool provides members with access to health care information and templates that can be used when writing letters to members of Congress.

“PHCC and the business community is fighting hard to ensure that Congress doesn’t pass a government-run health plan that will threaten private health care,” said PHCC government relations chair Jo Wagner. “PHCC believes that health care is best administered on free market principles and supports meaningful health reforms that make quality health care more affordable and accessible, but we cannot support the $1.5 trillion health care package being debated in the U.S. House, HR – 3200 the ‘America’s Affordable Health Choices Act.’”

The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors National-Association said that is opposes the proposal because of specific elements of the bill, such as employer “pay or play” mandates and a government-run public insurance option to compete with private providers.
