Re: Pfizer versus Kaiser: insurers want their day in court

Healthcare is failing, and blame is flailing. The blame game is on, and everyone is under fire. So who is ultimately responsible for healthcare? I propose that it’s the medical journals, because they are the only nexus for doctors, nurses, patients, schools, hospitals, insurers, government, research, and media. Without incisive input from medical journals, healthcare reform can never take place.
