This has got to be one of the most interesting stories (to me) that I've covered in the past year.
It tells about a Marilyn Bartlett-- a senior citizen who happened to be an expert in the health insurance cost field-- who defied all the odds and took on the insurance companies and hospitals in Montana to fix the state's failing health care system (and in record time).
She was bullied. She was harassed. But she did it. Montana's health care system was going belly up but it's now in the black thanks to these efforts.
Bartlett says it's possible for Congress or the U.S. government to do much the same on a national level, but they're not even talking about it. The proposals typically discussed in Washington D.C. don't touch upon the successful strategies Bartlett used. It would require taking on major industries, but she says it's doable.
