National Review Online’s Critical Condition blog was launched in June 2009 to track the fate and potential impact of sweeping health-care reform legislation in Congress (a.k.a. Obamacare). Upon the signing of that legislation into law in March 2010, the blog’s focus shifted, if slightly, to include analysis of the new health-care rules and regulations, the political fallout relative to the passage of Obamacare, and the effects on American society of what is now a much more government-managed health-care system.
