  •  This is one reason why what happens in California (8+ / 0-)

    is SO important.

    Most folks who are working in healthcare, especially those in public health and those who are working toward a better system of care for all with minimal health disparities, realize that Obamacare is not the final destination.  But they also realize how much of a turn toward the right direction it is.

    Right now so many state level officials are sitting back and watching, not committing either way (cough Virginia cough) until some tangible data that taking up the path that Obamacare lays out will make a difference is available.

    So you folks who are in states that have established their own exchanges, published your cost data and have revamped your systems are the places we advocates in the "wait and watch" states are counting on!  Please don't let it die on the vine until the rest of us can absorb and advocate for the changes that do make a difference.

    ;-) Thanks for the important reminder/diary
