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.
