A group of hospitals and a major multispecialty practice has finally woken up to the negative impact the AG-Partners deal will have in the Massachusetts health care market.  Here's the Boston Globe story and a companion from WBUR.

The problem, of course, is that these will be viewed as self-serving comments by the competitors of PHS.  More powerful comments would be those that come from the business community (like Associated Industries of Massachusetts, the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable, the MA Taxpayers Association; Health Care for All and other public advocacy groups and unions like SEIU 1199; and insurers.

Where are they?  Asleep at the switch, I'm afraid. Are they so intimidated as to not pursue their own self-interest?  And what about the Governor, and the gubernatorial candidates, and the attorney general candidates?
