Jonathan Cohn, a longtime journalist with an expertise in health policy, and author of the book Sick, has provided very useful reporting at the blogs of The New Republic. Now that magazine has given him his own blog, The Treatment.
The new blog indicates the excitement level rising about health reform issues… this new blog serves a bit like a replacement of “The Stump,” where people got obsessive coverage of the presidential campaign. As our modest blogging effort here in Sacramento suggests, there’s certainly enough material to get as obsessive. It’s a welcome addition to a community of health policy blogs.
His first day in newsworthy: SCHIP passes the Senate Finance Committee, including the ICHIA amendment that would allow California to get more federal matching funds!
