    Obamacare could crash and burn. But maybe that's a good thing, says T.R. Reid.
      Here in the United States, our private insurance adds 20 percent to every transaction via administrative costs and profit; 44,000 Americans die from lack of health insurance each year — more than are killed by breast cancer; and Canadians, whose system our politicians routinely mock, live three years longer than Americans.

      When Moffat’s name appeared on the Idaho State Board of Medicine’s January 2010 report on charges of wrongdoing, it was the end of a long road for him. He was first suspended for two weeks from a Connecticut hospital in 2000 for swearing at a pregnant,.

    What was really going on when the helicopters started flying over my campsite?
      With the leg stabilized, Poole’s son found a “big broken-off slab of tree. We shoved that underneath him. … We wanted him level so his leg wasn’t below his heart.” They hung some tarp for shade, and Poole allowed Beam a bit of water — not too much, though, because Poole knew Beam was headed to surgery.

    Republicans scramble to distance themselves from a plan they used to like.
      Presidential hopeful Tim Pawlenty got a great zinger when he called the Massachusetts health care system “Obamneycare.” It’s because before there was Obamacare — specifically the rule to require everyone to buy health insurance — Mitt Romney enacted the same policy in Massachusetts.

    Why Spokane's infamously high MS rates may be nothing more than a self-fulfilling myth.
      The tests, the doctor said, had come back negative. It was a shock to hear, the kind of shock that follows life-altering news. Especially news that comes out of nowhere. Before she got angry, Heather
