    In other words, the Euro models of UHC/single-payer.

    They're the models we should be striving toward as a goal, instead of pretending that PPACA is the end, especially as industry-sided as it is in its current form.

    Yes, it will help people, but no, it's not the first attempt to insure people nor should it be the final word on doing so. Now's the time to discuss the Fix It part of Pass It, Then Fix It.

    •  Don't think anybody is claiming PPACA as "the end" (0+ / 0-)

      Other than the teahadists, who see it as the end of the world as they know it.

      Every sane person knows that it will need "tweaking" -- and the sane and smart ones know that it is the pathway to some more rational system in the future, be it Canadian style, French style, British style, German style or whatever.

    •  Are you a troll, WR? (0+ / 0-)

      I can't think of a US insurer who covered this stuff on a normal policy, so why would we expect a first-try compromise bill in the US to cover it.

      We can't even get a budget passed or the debt ceilng raised, but you complain against what we do have and you think we have to fix this in this climate with this Congress?

      That's close to troll behavior. NO one said the ACA is the end. It has barely even started yet.
