Fiscal Times

A new online publication launched this week called the Fiscal Times (a million laughs, I know). But, it has some interesting stuff, including the first of a 5-part series on the cost of care at the end of life. I talked with the author about his series and some of my research that shows that hospice saves Medicare money while improving quality of life (there aren't so many examples of this dual occurrence).

Other interesting items include this one on tax expenditures in the federal budget such as the exclusion of employer paid insurance premiums from income, an article on bipartisan indifference to slowing health care cost inflation, a profile of Paul Ryan, and lots of other stuff.

It appears to have a variety of voices/views with columnsts/bloggers ranging from Cato Institute types to former Gore staffers. Check it out.
