There’s a lot going on at the What If Post these days.
The biggest change is that after a year of breaking down health care issues for us, Julia Nagle is heading west, to grad school at University of California, Berkeley. (Hopefully, she’ll still find time to write some posts for us from the beach.) Rob Cullen will be taking over for her as What If Post’s writer and content manager.
We’re also planning some changes for the site, hopefully making it easier to navigate through all the information we’ve collected over the past few years. If you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear them. Leave them in the comment section below.
In the meantime, we’ve added some new links to the Blogs and Websites We Like. In particular, check out Ezra Klein’s blog for the Washington Post and Jonathan Cohn’s blog, The Treatment, which are two of the most interesting, informative, and easy to read health care reform blogs on the web. Also, we highly recommend Factcheck.org, a nonprofit, nonpartisan site that calls out the false and misleading statements from all the major players in U.S. politics. As the health care debate has been heating up over the past few weeks, they’ve been busy, to say the least.
And with Congress taking a six-week break on health care negotiations, we think that now would be a good time to take a deep breath and try to get a better sense of where things actually stand. Starting this week, we’ll be publishing a primer on the 2009 push for health care reform, breaking down all the major players, organizations, and bills that are floating around Congress. Hopefully we can make some sense of what’s been happening in Washington this summer.
