Sally Pipes, "Medical bankruptcy: Fact or fiction?" (The Hill, 10/23/2012)

(Her conclusion: "The overwhelming body of research shows that medical costs play little or no role in the vast majority of U.S. personal bankruptcies."  Plus she notes that Canada has a nearly-identical bankruptcy rate as the US, despite the fact that Canadians have "free" government-provided health care.)
