    Nope. I don't like a single thing in it. Mostly because there shouldn't be anything in it. There is NO CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY for the US Government to be involved in any type of health or insurance issues.

    Although it is far less reaching then it should have been..it's a good start. I like the fact more people will be covered, it deals with cost, gets rid of the "pre-existing" conditions crapola that HMOs were using to drop coverage and covers kids.

    It is not perfect, but in no way should it be totally repealed. I think that it can be reworked over time.

    Jim, please point out to me the SPECIFIC AUTHORITY in Article I, Section 8 of the United States Constitution for the US Congress to enact any legislation or appropriate any money for health care, insurance, or anything of the sort.

    Yes, there's plenty in it that I like. I like the enhanced primary care initiatives; the quality measure development; the payment reform demonstrations; the incentives and mechanisms for innovation in delivery system reform; the emphasis on care coordination, particularly for the disproportionately ill and expensive among us; the investments in comparative effectiveness research; the workforce provisions; the shift toward value-based purchasing; and the enhanced anti-fraud tools.

    I like other pieces of it, as well, but the overarching theme of what I like about it is simple: with the ACA-CHIPRA-HITECH trifecta (since the actual health reform law, the Affordable Care Act, was one of three major pieces of health legislation passed in the last Congress) not just quality but health care value, as well as patient safety and patient-centeredness, is finally getting a much-needed shot in the arm. Not only does that have obvious benefits, it's a prerequisite for getting spending under control in a responsible way.
