"[The bill] has many strong elements," Frist said, according to The Huffington Post. "And those elements, whatever happens, need to be preserved, need to be cuddled, need to be snuggled, need to be promoted and need to be implemented."
Frist has teamed up with another retired senator and former majority leader, Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), to lead a bipartisan project sponsored by the BPC to help state governors, legislators and other officials implement the new health care law.
ABC News reported that their project will focus on three challenges states face as they transition to the new rules: insurance exchanges, insurance reforms and delivery systems.
The BPC effort kicks off as Congress prepares to debate repealing the health care reform law.
"Moving forward, we know there remains a great political divide over the political future of our health care system but the need for substantive discussions and cooperation and working toward our shared goals has never been greater," Daschle said Tuesday.
Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, a Democrat, will lead the efforts with states, ABC News said.
