Administration Halts Survey of Making Doctor Visits, New York Times

NYT reporter Robert Pear follows up on the fate of the government’s plan to employ counterfeit patients in order to surreptitiously survey how physician offices respond to types of payment for their services.

This is not the first such aggressive tactic by the current administration. Recall the White House set up to collect emails/speeches of alleged “disinformation” about their healthcare law–or Sebelius’ threats to exclude critics from participating in the new health insurance exchanges?
