Re: HC should be policy, not politics
The way things stand right now, IMO, the success or failure of the ACA will be determined on a state by state level. If more states/people like what they what they are getting versus hate, that's the first piece of evidence that will propell the finetuning that proponents expected to happen in the first place.

HC should be policy, not politics
She's 100% right that partisan political bickering is only damaging the discussion of how to deliver healthcare in a cost-efficient and universal manner. Love this quote: 'Washington decisions are made in an evidence-free zone... evidence-based policy decisions are needed,'

But at this point, does anyone REALLY think we can separate nasty politics and the ACA? Until we do, fine-tuning is going to be a problem.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
