SAFEWAY COMMENTS ON THE HEALTH CARE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE ADVISORY COUNCIL ON SOCIAL SECURITY

 SAFEWAY COMMENTS ON THE HEALTH CARE RECOMMENDATIONS OF
 THE ADVISORY COUNCIL ON SOCIAL SECURITY
 OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Statement from Safeway Inc. regarding the health care recommendations of the Advisory Council on Social Security.
 Safeway applauds the mission of the Advisory Council on Social Security in attempting to address the need for comprehensive health reform. The report today contains a number of positive steps that could assist in this endeavor.
 However, Safeway is disappointed that the council failed to address the primary concern of comprehensive health care reform. To recommend access without cost containment is a further problem rather than a solution.
 Safeway feels strongly that access is important but only in conjunction with cost containment. To do otherwise would degrade the quality of health care, overburden the current system and further escalate prices.
 As a workable solution Safeway recommends comprehensive health care reform with universal access. A program such as that of the National Leadership Coalition would be particularly effective especially as it enjoys broad based support. In such a manner, quality care for everyone may be achieved at a sustainable cost.
