The next step for the ACA?

Many times I have both praised and criticized the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Removing preexisting conditions and subsidizing those of us whose income falls within 400% of the Federal Poverty Level is huge also, however...

*We still have high costs.
*We are subsidizing a corrupt privatized health system.
*Health insurance corporations still control which doctors and what treatments you can have.

I realize that the private sector health system's tentacles reach deep and are snarled up in financial sectors that affect our overall economy in many ways. Untangling this mess won't be easy but we need to continue to fight for a saner health care system.

I support a public health care system as a public service for "we the people".
It's time our tax dollars helped us for a change.
