Wow, my hit counter is going crazy. If you’re coming over from Eric Alterman’s blog, welcome & please take a look around. This blog combines health care business and health care policy, and tries to tell the truth about the present, while highlighting big issues for the future. And in health care, the present is very, very messy. If you want more on health care policy, please fell free to peruse the policy and policy/politics categories on the left column — there’s plenty there for all types, but I am very cynical about the practical prospects for "market reform", particularly if it leaves out a large segment of the population.
