An awesome and epic piece of reporting by Stephen Brill — New Yorker-worthy work in a mass-market forum that only leaves me asking, “why didn’t we have journalism like this during the 2009 healthcare debate?”

Well worth clicking through all 11(!) pages. Or just buy it at the newsstand to show your support for good work!

The article, the single longest one-author piece in the magazine's history, was originally slated to lead the debut issue of the redesigned New Republic, but was booted when TNR landed a sitdown with Barack Obama.
