The debate about the Dartmouth work is important because a growing number of health policy researchers are finding that overhauling the nation&#039;s health care system will be far harder and more painful than the Dartmouth work has long suggested. Cuts, if not made carefully, could cost lives.&quot; </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/clay-waters">Clay Waters</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Another "<a href="/timeswatch/articles/2010/20100421121533.aspx">now they tell us</a>" moment from the Times on Obama-care appeared on Thursday's front page: "<a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/03/business/03dartmouth.html?ref=politics&amp;pagewanted=all">Study Cited for Health-Cost Cuts Overstated Its Upside, Critics Say</a>" by health reporters Reed Abelson and Gardiner Harris.
