Jonathan Cohn knows more about health care, and the health care reform law, than just about anybody. He gives a long, detailed, and frightening analysis of how the legal efforts to attack the new law have a real chance at crippling it, unlike the Kabuki-vote that will happen in the House later today.
It is worth noting that his article appears in the New Republic, which has published most of Cohn's writings on the subject. Back during the debate over the Clinton plan to reform health care, TNR ran a scathing, and it turns out largely unsupportable, article by Betsy McCaughy that attacked the Clinton plan and was widely credited with helping doom the legislation. It was TNR's most irresponsible moment. Cohn's fine work has redeemed the magazine.
