Harkin: The Prevention Fund Saves Lives and Money

"The Prevention Fund gives us an unprecedented opportunity to bend the cost curve by jumpstarting the transformation of America into a true wellness society – a society that focuses on preventing disease and thereby saves both lives and money. This fund is saving lives, and saving money. To slash this Fund, as the White House intends to do, is bad public policy – and bad priorities. To take money from the Prevention Fund is to cannibalize the Affordable Care Act in ways that will cost both money and lives. It is a violation of both the letter and spirit of this landmark law.” -- Senator Tom Harkin
