How health reform happened

Those intrigued by politics and Washington dealings will likely be interested in a series from The New Republic on how health-care reform came to pass. The first article in the five-part series appears online today; writer Jonathan Cohn describes his work this way:

This is the story of how health care reform came together--and, more than once, nearly fell apart. It’s based on hundreds of hours of conversation over the last two years and a series of interviews with key players conducted in the last few weeks. It is the story of a president with transformational aspirations, a congressional party ill at ease with power, political institutions that have been roundly written off as sclerotic, and an experiment in government action that has only just begun.
