The ACA will move the US from 37th in the world in healthcare to in 2 years?

I think its a good start but still makes insurance companies wealthy and will costly to the poor.
That being said, it will move us out of the 37th sucking place. Any guesses what position?

I'm voting around 30 it still sucks as compared to other countries but its a start.

1. Gotta push into the low 20's at least...

I'm guessing mid-teens.

Of course, we won't really know for years, which gives the Repubs far too much time to gut its provisions.

But hope springs eternal, y'know?

8. An example of something that just happened to my neighbor

He had back problems but worked cleaning stairs once or twice a week.
The pain got so bad we had to call an ambulance, two medics came, then a doctor and an apprentice doctor, then two more medics. He went to the hospital emergency room. Transferred to another hospital by an emergency Van cross town. Stayed 3 weeks, now he has someone that shops for him and cleans his apartment once a week. Operation in two months with the best surgeon in the nordic countries.

Total cost....... Zero.
