National Underwriter has covered the healthcare transformation in this country intensively since before it was a glimmer in the Democrats’ eye, through a long and intense political battle, through the many legal and legislative challenges the Republicans threw at it afterward, and to the present, through an uneven implementation period. And during all of that time, we have tried to remain objective about how we cover an issue of such massive importance to the country, and to our readers, whom the new law affected directly (and for the most part, negatively). We often were excoriated by readers for failing to excoriate the legislation itself, as if to say that failing to attack the law is by default, supporting it. That is not the kind of binary logic journalists adhere to (unless you’re part of a cheerleading squad, like MSNBC or FOX News), but there you have it.
