Excellent piece. Thanks for posting.

I liked the closing paragraph:
I don’t expect to persuade the people who really believe all the malarkey about death panels and socialism. They have been lied to for so long that I think it will take years before they will be able to understand how badly they have been used. But, hopefully, there are those who want to know why Obamacare exists and what the point of it is. And when you know the truth, you will understand that—for all of its imperfections—Obamacare is an essential step toward healing the deeply sick American health-care system.

I suppose you can think of ACA as just a step in a process. But it still supports the idea that health care is a commodity to be bought and sold in the marketplace. That's the idea that I don't agree with.

This guy makes a good argument, though.
