Courting John Edwards

1. Some time ago The Medical Quack had a story to which many folks I know could relate. The story was originally in the LA Times in a column from Steve Lopez. The page has since disappeared but I found the initial story again.

2. Now comes this editorial in the NYT, entitled, ‘A Ripoff by Heath Insurers’ with this inquiry:

“Have health insurers been systematically cheating patients and doctors of fair reimbursement for medical services? ”

In other words, is the phrase “reasonable and customary” unfair?


What do the two have in common? And does John Edwards meeting with Obama yesterday, and Clinton a few weeks ago, have a role in either story?

It is when you have a ‘new economic message‘ for voters,

“for hairdressers in Wisconsin, postal workers in Ohio and autoworkers across the United States who are struggling financially. . . . . Clinton is courting working-class voters with a new message of economic populism similar to that of John Edwards.

Both Democratic presidential hopefuls are wooing Edwards’ followers touting the changes they’ll bring to lessen the burden on the middle and working classes.
