First time here? Welcome! We know clicking around a blog for the first time can be overwhelming, so we’ve made a few short lists of the posts that best represent Project Millennial.

HEALTHCARE FOR DUMMIES
Wherein we try to unravel the mysteries of American healthcare via blog post:

  1. Medicaid in 1000 Words – and Three Charts — on the nuts and bolts of Medicaid, the oft-misunderstood American health insurance safety net

OUR “GREATEST HITS”
Hits don’t lie, right? Assuming that’s what Shakira said, here are our 5 most-read posts:

  1. Arkansas is fiddling around with Obamacare. People care. But is it legal, and does it matter? — The first in our Arkansas saga (click through for the most recent) analyzed the legal and economic context of premium support under an obscure provision of the Medicaid statute. It’s long, wonky, and our most-read post to date.
