Healthcare a question of fairness among states

New York Times, January 26, 2010

Herszenhorn in his Prescriptions" blog for the New York Times. And it is a reflection of one of the biggest challenges President Obama and Congressional leaders have faced since they began tackling healthcare last year: how to devise a national solution for a problem that varies sharply from state to state, he writes.
