Health Care Reading List

“I do my own research. I have a very logical mind. I look for the loopholes in the arguments.” -Robert Fink

I have opinions about the health care bill. Of course, I have opinions about everything. I’m not a health care economist. I’m not a health care policy expert. I’m just a girl with a blog. So honestly, you shouldn’t listen too much to my opinions on the bill. You should go read things from really smart people who are experts in the field. Here’s some suggestions:
