Healthcare: Repeating Massachusetts' Mistakes?
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
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.
FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
