After the diagnosis, what’s the treatment?

Interesting and on-point discussion this week at Josh Marshall’s Talking Points Memo blog, or more specifically, the “TPMCafe Book Club,” featuring several Californians.

There’s an ongoing discussion on health care reform led off by Jonathan Cohn, timed with release of his new book, “Sick: The Untold Story of America’s Health Care Crisis—and the People Who Pay the Price.”

The online discussion features key notables debating Jonathan Cohn, including Jacob Hacker, Roger Hickey, Maggie Mahar, Joseph Paduda, Ezra Klein, and some Californians: Matthew Holt (San Francisco-based author of The Health Care Blog), Robin Podolsky (press secretary for state Sen. Sheila Kuehl), and Don McCanne (of Physicians for a National Health Plan and the California Physicians Alliance, and sometime participant at Health Access California board meetings).
Like good policy wonks, they skip over the bulk of the book that details the problems and the history of how our health system evolved, and start focusing on the politics of various solutions. It’s a familiar conversation.
Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
