We’re not claiming healthcare is a “right”, but in the wealthiest country on the planet, we – at the Rainbow Movement – believe that healthcare is a responsibility. We have a plan to introduce a competitor that will provide dignified coverage to every man, woman and child in this country.
The Rainbow Movement
A story of Redemption, inspired by a rainbow.
We have many ambitious goals, but first among them is our plan to fix the broken healthcare system in this country. Our plan is NOT socialism. Our plan is NOT European. Our plan is NOT unrealistic. It will work.
Healthcare is a Matter of Human Dignity.
For what cannot be quantified, we have stories to make meaning of our journey.
Every voice counts.
We are now seeking people of all backgrounds and experiences to share your story. When people share their miracle it inspires hope for our mission.
Not cynical. Not resigned.
Over the last 3 years, our founder has been working with PhD Economist Dennis Paulaha to develop a tenable plan for national healthcare. We now have it.

Are also on the faces of people going by.

Last year, 45,000 people died from preventable causes due to lack of affordable care.
Who wants to live longer, be healthier, and have more money to spend? Everyone.
Is that an impossible wish? The answer is, no. In fact, it is already happening in all other industrialized countries.
They are spending less than the United States on healthcare, and people are living longer and healthier lives.
It’s like Americans are driving rusty old cars and spending more on repairs than it would cost to pay for a brand new Mercedes.
And because our wasteful spending affects business costs, our healthcare system is hurting exports, increasing imports, and reducing economic growth.
Of course, most Americans know all that. Which is why a large majority of Americans want to switch to something better.
So why hasn’t it already happened? Because no one has come up with a simple, non-disruptive transition plan.
Entrepreneur turned philanthropist. Redeemed by a rainbow.
I tell people I was inspired by rainbows to do good in the world. Which is why our Rainbow Movement stands with those who need a voice and supports projects that provide a better quality of life for those in need. The Rainbow Movement helps organizations that help other people.

Letters to My Granddaughter
The Grandfather Diaries
The Grandfather Diaries are a running record of Bill’s conversations he has about his granddaughters. Circumstances have kept them apart, but that doesn’t diminish the love he has for them and the wisdom he wants to impart to them. A lifetime of choices – both right and wrong – have formed a person with both a sense of humor and a contrite heart.
