10. Good decision for Americans....

I think we will see more states use this as a way of beefing up their state systems into single payer plans, or at least "public option" plans. The expansion of Medicaid starts the ball rolling, and the Exchanges are supposed to encourage public based plans as alternatives to private insurance.

We may end up with a Canada-like plan, where individual states handle the details with Federal support, but it ends up covering everybody, which is what we need.
