    WASHINGTON, April 7, 2010 -- “Rather than asking whether the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) does everything to improve access and lower costs, we should ask how it compares with the status quo,” the American College of Physicians’ (ACP) senior public policy adviser said in a paper published online today in Annals of Internal Medicine, the flagship journal of ACP. “By this measure, the PPACA is an extraordinary achievement.”

    And I suggest you think about why people who advocate the other side don't even discuss these contrary opinions.

      Most physicians don't want single payer because of the negative impact it will have on their income.  They're profiting handsomely under the private health insurance system and don't want to lose it.

      The current version of HCR is exactly what they wanted - coverage for all while maintaining the high reimbursement levels for private insurance.
