RGF and others speak out against ABQ Chamber on Health Care

As you probably know, the Rio Grande Foundation has been among the most prominent organizations opposed to more government intervention in the health care sector and supporting market-based reforms.
While most New Mexico businesses and business organizations have opposed Governor Richardson’s plans for a massive new government-run health system, the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce came out in support of the Governor’s plan. Recently, a group of businesses and other organizations including the Rio Grande Foundation sent a letter to the Chamber outlining concerns with the Chamber’s support for even more government intervention in health care and the negative impact such policies would have on small businesses.
