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 PENNumbra.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.
