On the other hand, props where due.

Here’s a fairly spectacular comic explaining what Obamacare is, why it’s that way, what it isn’t, and what it might lead to.

I don’t have a lot to add because he’s done a bang-up job of it. All I’ll say is that I stand by my earlier remark on the subject: I hope that Obamacare is the “don’t ask/don’t tell” of health care. A timid, necessary step in the right direction that will look horribly ill-considered and awkward when we finally get to a single-payer system.

I’m not thrilled by the first 7 years of Obama, but we’re in a measurably better place with respect to health care than we were 7 years ago.  I’ll give him that much.

  1. You are correct the comic did quite a good job at explaining the ACA. No, it is not perfect, but it is a good first step toward the single payer health system that the U.S. should have. Great post and thanks for the link to the comic.

    1. Thank you kindly. I hope against hope that it’s the first step in the right direction. There’s still a great deal that could go wrong, but I feel like, the longer we go, the more likely it will be too popular to kill.
