Medicare & the Mob

I blogged previously about University of Michigan law professor Jill Horwitz’s review of Medicare Meets Mephistopholes, a book by Cato adjunct scholar David A. Hyman.

Hyman and Horwitz are now mixing it up in an online debate over at the University of Pennsylvania Law Review’s PEN​Num​bra​.com. Readers will find a good synopsis of Hyman’s book, as well as a good point‐​by‐​point critique. Medicare’s critics will enjoy how Hyman likens Medicare — and many of its apologists — to mobsters. Also available in pdf.
