Two healthcare adversaries find a need to collaborate

New York Times, June 4, 2010

After quaring off as political foes for more than a year, the Obama administration and the health insurance industry have discovered that they need each other, the New York Times reports. Both have huge stakes in the success of the new healthcare law: The political fortunes of President Obama and Congressional Democrats depend on their ability to translate its promise into reality for voters by reining in health costs and making insurance available to everyone at an affordable price. Likewise, the financial future of the health insurance industry depends on the government, reports the Times.
