  • Excellent commentary, Diana. I too am ecstatic about the court ruling on ACA, but also very concerned about the wasted energy, time and money that will be spent guarding what it establishes, and moving forward to a system that does meet the needs of every person in the U.S. What we have now (or better stated – what we don’t have now) is shameful, and the ACA is only a first step. Thanks for your voice and insight on this important step toward health care equality! Peggy

  • Thanks for weighing in, Peggy. I do hope we’ll eventually get to a single payer system. The administrative waste and time sink of billing, etc. is frustrating on many levels. Diana
