RIP The Treatment
This is old news, but I was freshly reminded of it when I made the rounds to my favorite websites this morning.
Jonathan Cohn, one of the most brilliant writers on health care reform, has put his blog to bed. His site for The New Republic was indispensable source of insight for me as I learned about the American health care system and tried to follow reform efforts at the same time. In his parting post he writes-
TNR created this blog to cover the debate over whether to pass comprehensive health care reform. That debate has ended. Now it is time for this blog to do the same.
That’s a shame. We need Cohn more than ever right now as all of us try to figure out what this new legislation means.
I was lucky enough to meet Cohn when he visited our studios for an interview during the thick of the health care debate. He came in with rumpled hair wearing a jacket with over-sized sleeves. Then he sat down in the studio and gave a crystal clear explanation of the evolving legislation. It’s worth a second listen.
