#779 Being of two minds (Health Care)

A somewhat bi-polar look at the Affordable Care Act. Is it better than the previous status quo? Yes, obviously. Is it a stepping stone toward single-payer or is it further entrenching the for-profit health insurance companies making it less like there will be further reform? That's harder to predict.
