John Iglehart, the founding editor of Health Affairs
and national corespondent for the New England Journal of Medicine
, posted his instant analysis
[may require paid subscription] of the House's failure on Thursday
to override the President's veto
of the SCHIP reauthorization bill, HR 976
. Iglehart's provides an excellent overview of the controversy and connects this contretemps to "the larger issue of what level of public support uninsured people deserve as our employer-based insurance system continues to erode." Excellent read.
