Former governor Thompson works with healthcare cost-control group

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Former Governor Tommy Thompson will help look for ways to control health care costs that both major parties can support. Thompson has joined the Bipartisan Policy Center, which calls itself the only Washington think tank that actively promotes cooperation between the parties.

The center says the Republican Thompson will work on the health care project along with former U-S Senate Democrat Tom Daschle, and ex-Republican Senators Bill Frist and Pete Domenici. Thompson says he believes there’s common ground on ways to provide quality health care at affordable costs. Thompson favored a national cost-containment effort when he was George W. Bush’s health secretary. When he ran for the U-S Senate last year, Thompson vowed to repeal the Democratic health reform law – much of which takes effect next year. Thompson lost his Senate contest to Democrat Tammy Baldwin.
