"The Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) achieved one big thing -- covering some 32 million more Americans -- but made limited progress toward the other major change that is needed: reforming the way we deliver and pay for healthcare. Without success on the latter item, implementation of the former is unlikely to be completely successful or politically sustainable. Key to this effort is making Medicare, the country's expensive public healthcare program for senior citizens, more efficient." [editor's note: She's right about that part; without "reform" (into whatever shape it must take) of Medicare, all hope of healthcare change is doomed - SAT]  (12/23/10)
