Here’s what we’re working on for tomorrow:

Congress can’t begin to reform health care without reforming Medicare, which accounts for one in every five dollars spent on health care. And Congress can’t begin to reform Medicare without overhauling its reimbursement system, which rewards inefficiency and punishes states with a record of providing high-quality and low-cost care.

How many times does a Tacoma teacher have to push students around before he’s removed from the classroom? The answer should be once.
