Everyone is interested in an article on doctor scams

I finished reading Elisabeth Rosenthal’s An American Sickness a few days ago, so the depradations of the American health care system are even fresher on my mind than usual right now. Unsurprisingly, one of the things she talks about is the surge in hospitals surreptitiously employing doctors who are out-of-network and therefore not covered by a patient’s insurance. The result is gigantic bills for people who thought—quite reasonably—that if they went to an in-network hospital they had nothing to worry about.It turns out this scam is especially common in emergency rooms, precisely the place where patients are least likely to be thinking clearly

So, excuse me but Obama skipped the part about cost control. He skipped it under the bet that Hillary would win.  Thus, in front of us all, Obama and the Dems did a deliberate scam ton put the stress of Obamacare into the next regime.  This is exactly why recessions fall on regime boundaries.
