New York Times: “UCLA Trumps Dartmouth”

When the New York switches sides, it’s probably true, and now, after years of extolling the virtues of Dartmouth’s geographic malarkey, the Times has published an article about the work conducted by Tom Rosenthal and his colleagues at UCLA and elsewhere in the U Cal system demonstrating that more care is not wasteful, as the Dartmouth-Orszag team professes. It saves lives, which is what health care is all about. Senators should take note before they vote on their historic bill, which will penalize hospitals and physicians who provide added care for patients who are sicker and often poorer. It’s not too late to do it right.
