    The ACA seems like a step in the right direction, but only a step.

    To me Single Payer is a no-brainer.

    Canada and Taiwan seem to have the best systems.  But there are many good variations from Norway to Uruguay.

    Let's hope Vermont and Californiacan lead the way.

    Daily Kos an oasis of truth. Truth that leads to action.

      That indicate he may backtrack on single payer in VT. If you know folks in the state, get them to call the governor's office and flood his email. He needs to renew his commitment to single payer in Vermont.

      I see the ACA as a basic giveaway for the Big Insurers and Big Pharma. My insurance premiums will be sky high - I make about $ 50 a month too much to get help. And worst of all, I have heard that Blue Cross "Anthem" will be in charge of the state of California's exchange.

      Anthem is  notorious for not letting a patient submit a claim, but instead tell the patient the doctor's office must do it, but then they tell the doctor's office that the patient must op it. In the end, the patient ends up paying.

      Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.

        Focus on care, not profit streams of nonproviders

        There could be no better argument for some sort of universal health-care system than Dr. Kessler’s op-ed ("The coming Obamacare shock," April 30). The current system of health-care delivery, even if or after ObamaCare is fully implemented, denies access to millions, remains highly variable in quality and still costs too much because it is driven by the vast profits of mostly nonproviders within the health-care industrial complex.
