Dr. Scott Atlas explains how, "Obamacare imperils America's women" by depriving them of choice.

Harvard health economist Regina Herzlinger, "Predicts ACOs, PCMHs Will Fail".

On the positive side, Dr. Kenneth Fisher and Dr. Lee Gross of D4PC explain the benefits of Health Savings Accounts and patient control of their own health spending in, "Prudence of a patient-centered approach" (Washington Times, 5/3/2012.)
