The top of today's reading list is Yves Smith's report on the problems with prescription drug coverage under Obamacare ........ and the last article is a proposal to reorganize the United States into 50 new states of equal population.

Follow up:

  • Obamacare’s Drug Coverage Minefield (Yves Smith, Naked Capitalism) Yves Smith has contributed to Global Economic Intersection. In this article she suggests that ACA "throws [some] patients under the bus" when it comes to prescription drug expenses. Who benefits? Insurers and drug companies. She says this is all complicated because "it [is] hard to find the information to enable citizens to navigate the drug minefield successfully."



  • Electoral College Reform (Neil Freeman, FakeistheNewReal.org) Hat tip to Barry Ritholtz, The Big Picture. The proposed map would have 50 states of equal population, each with 9 or 10 congressional districts.
