Over at, Kathleen Sebelius today released the application to enroll in the ACA:

For single Americans, it will be only 3 pages, far shorter than any private plan. It goes live in October. Here is the intro page:

This is an excerpt from "Step 2" in the 7-page application for families:

Check out that last bit:

"Do you want help paying for medical bills from the last three months?"
Cue the exploding GOP heads! (Don't worry -- covered by Obamacare)

And last but not least, here is Appendix B, which is for American Indians and Alaskan Natives:

Okay, okay, this isn't single-payer, but it is a good step toward that ultimate goal. I think it is powerful because it isn't an attack ad, a manufactured crisis or a campaign slogan. It is an ACTUAL THING from government that will help hundreds of thousands of people.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
