- David Himmelstein, MD: Primary care doctor and co-founder of Physicians for a National Health Program. He's also associate professor of medicine at Harvard University.
- Thomas Miller: Resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. He was former senior health economist for Congress' Joint Economic Committee.
