Healthcare: Repeating Massachusetts' Mistakes?

WASHINGTON - March 19 -

TRUDY LIEBERMAN

Lieberman is a contributing editor of the Columbia Journalism Review, where she regularly writes for its Campaign Desk on healthcare.

She has written a series of ten articles on the Massachusetts plan, which was signed into law by then-Governor Mitt Romney in 2006. Her articles document the similarity of the current proposal in Congress with the Massachusetts plan as well as that plan's record of failure in providing what was promised in terms of cost savings and adequate medical coverage.

Lieberman has also begun a series titled "Regulating Healthcare." The first piece was titled "Insurers and hospitals in Massachusetts snub the regulators."

Her latest piece is "Parsing the AP's Health Care Primer: Its attempt at informing falls short." A complete archive of Lieberman's Campaign Desk articles is at CJR.org.
