“Oklahoma Watch” is not what you would call a bastion of libertarian journalism.  Up until now it seems as if they have walked lock-step with the hospitals in Oklahoma parroting the poor-mouthing propaganda and promoting the Medicaid expansion of Obamacare.  I have never understood how the folks “on the left” have been able to inconsistently carry the flag of corporate health care.  I have said many times that “I miss the hippies,” meaning those folks “on the left” who tend to not trust government and their crony pals.  

This article gives me hope, an article written to expose the negligible extent to which the hospitals in Oklahoma render “charity care.”  This article represents an incredible departure from the corporate medical party line.  I hope that I am not missing something here and that the folks at “Oklahoma Watch” have had perhaps a change of heart.  I look forward to more investigative pieces like this.
