TIME magazine keeps getting thinner, but at least it has not been reduced yet to fleeting pixels like Newsweek. If you subscribe, be sure to read the Steve Bill article BITTER PILL pages 16 to 55-- a healthy dose of outrage...Why Medical Bills are Killing Us. If you don't subscribe buy it off the newstand.
There is enough fodder in this magazine for 4 years of Congressinal hearings. This should also be inspiration for South Dakota mainstream media to start doing some serious digging into ripoffs and obscene pricing by health care systems and insurance. South Dakota lagislators should be furiously digging into this if they want to control medicare costs in better ways than denying coverage to tens of thousands of South Dakotans.
I will have more on this soon. In the meantime, a link to TIME Bitter Pill.
