The Last Edit

June 10, 2011 - Today I did last edit on my book The Health Reform Maze: Blueprint for Physician Practices. The book should come out in July.

As I write, constitutionality of individual mandate being considered in Atlanta appeals court. No decision yet. Will go eventually to Supreme Court.

Public disapproval of health reform law remains 51% opposed, 40% favorable and has not budged in last year. Majority favor repeal by 51% to 41%.

Hot issues are individual mandate, sharply rising costs, health exchanges, Medicaid burden on states, 30% of employers threatening to drop coverage for employees in 2014, and wave of 1372 waivers to companies most often affiliated with Democrats.

Presidential campaign shaping up. State of economy and health care, esp. Medicare fate, will determine Presidential election.

If Obama vs. Romney, debate on health care should be fascinating.
