OK, that headline's a little over the top but that's apparently how you get people to read blog posts. (Either that or you claim that the Democratic Congresspeople and politicians who just paid you about $4,000,000 are "stupid").
What this post really is about is a great Boston Business Journal summary of Tufts Health Plan's 2014 and 2015 financial outlook by reporter Jessica Bartlett. (But if I just put that in the headline, would you have clicked through?). Bartlett's story is much better than the mail-it-in crap in the Globe this morning which just regurgitates the third quarter numbers without giving the full-year or lookahead context. You might understand that sort of story in the Globe if it were bylined by some junior journalism intern but the Globe story was written by its leading business editor.
