Health Wonk Review for June 23, 2017

The Double Edition

I nearly did a double take when I saw Joe Paduda’s work on this week’s Health Wonk Review – and not just because he dubbed it The Double Edition.

Am I seeing double?

Joe had to have redoubled his efforts with the compendium, which actually featured nearly twice the normal baker’s dozen of health policy posts. What the deuce, I wondered?

Turns out Joe actually looked beyond his Inbox and scoured the interwebs to collect a bunch of great posts related to this little brouhaha about repealing the Affordable Care Act.  Among them, a great piece from Andrew Sprung: AHCA’s unkindest cuts. (Thanks again, Joe, for slipping it into the review.)

The end result is just a heckuvalot of great health policy reading – enough that it was obviously necessary to bisect the whole bunch so readers could conveniently devour it in two courses.

You won’t want to just check out this week’s edition. You’ll want to doublecheck it out.

Will other hosts imitate Joe’s duo-ver? Is it possible to out-deux Joe’s effort? You’ll have to tune in when Yours Truly hosts the next edition of Health Wonk Review on July 20.
