    i'm stunned.

    But at least this new transparency might do exactly what the administration hopes: create some competition that forces both providers and insurance companies to negotiate lower prices, and to save all of us some money.
    c'mon... a real reform of health care would have addressed this... because it would have looked in depth at the pressures driving costs and everything else. i mean, is this info all that new or surprising??????

    too many of us have been saying that this reform didn't address the real deep issues.

    it doesn't get any easier. honestly. how much more data does this site need to consider using its sway and presence to apply power and ideas outside of brand politics? issues... and local and regional politics.

    as Jeff Sachs stated recently:

    "We have a corrupt politics to the core, I am afraid to say, and . . . both parties are up to their neck in this. This has nothing to do with Democrats or Republicans."
    meaning it's not one or the other... but I don't have to explain what he means, do I?
