I know this is a pro-obamacare site. but your initial analysis has a very anti-CARE bias. If this law is to be combined and make single payer within nation. This could be a great bi-partisan program that could make our national health plans the best. Obamacare has its pitfalls also–some are crazy. ACA is not the 1 true solution–I see it everyday as a Independent broker. ACA is truly designed for the poor and the sick. I have several healthy and >400% poverty clients–ACA does not fit their needs or budget. We do need a Multi-tiered program–Americans are to much a diverse population–we can’t and should not lump us into 1 plan with options. There are several points that will make our nationwide socialized health program a better fit for every American. I think it is time to share ideas rather than confuse more American on good and bad or GOP or Lib’s.
