    This will be GREAT news for Wally the teabagger that’s moving to Canada because America is too socialist.
    I still think that if they had gone for a single payer system, they could have gotten it through.

  2. Tea Party Slayer says :

    Some folks think America will eventually have a single-payer expansion of Medicare. ACA is a solid, private-insurer based plan, which is what the Right wanted by blocking public option and single-payer. I understand that Romneycare is popular, covers almost everybody, and is having a few problems controlling costs. From what I can tell, ACA mirrors Romneycare, but improves upon cost control measures right out of the box.
