Hard to miss in the flood of health care news this week is the fact that it has been all about cost–with relatively little mention of the other goal of health care reform, universal coverage. Of course, many health experts argue that it is impossible to achieve the former without the latter. But curbing the cost of health care is a more politically saleable argument, because it affects everyone, not just the 47 million or so (and growing) uninsured. And it is also the reason that business is now climbing aboard what looks like a moving train for health reform. Here’s a story I did for TIME.com on what that means.
Also on TIME.com, John Curran has this story on what corporations are learning as they try to do it on their own.
