A bipartisan prescription for national health care reformBy Newt Gingrich and Andrew Von Eschenbach
Okay, so the actual op-ed piece itself is not really important, although you can read it here if you're interested. It's pretty much what you would expect, vague, meaningless suggestions like "make healthcare more affordable," and "make healthcare more available," and (swear to God) "Make healthcare more appropriate." So, basically do nothing and let the free market work its fucking bullshit magic or whatever, but that's not really the point.
Here's the point.
I know who Newt Gingrich is, but I had no idea who this Andrew Von MC Escher guy was, so I looked at the bottom of the piece, where they explain who the authors are and I found this:
Newt Gingrich is the founder of the Center for Health Transformation. Dr. Andrew Von Eschenbach is former commissioner of the FDA and senior strategist at the center.
Yeah, that's right. The AJC's idea of bi-partisan means Newt Gingrich and a guy who works for Newt Gingrich.
Goddamned liberal media!
Pathetic. And they wonder why newspapers are dying.
