With all due respect, I don't think you've read the ACA or you'd know that most of what you say is not true. There is no care rationing; that's pure scare-tactics that comes from anti-reformers. Insurance and health care already are very regulated; the ACA just changes some of those regulations, with the major health care changes occurring in Medicaid and Medicare, which are creatures of federal law and based 100% on government regulation. And in light of the Congressional earmark ban, you should see the reduction of "pet projects," but certainly, there are no such "projects" in the ACA. Since I've read the entire law and all of the regulations that have been issued to implement it, I would suggest that my information may be a little more accurate than the dogmatic, baseless critiques you've been hearing. The biggest mistake the Dems made around health reform is this failure of messaging, allowing opponents to repeat allegations like the ones you make with impunity.
I will have another piece coming soon on the provisions of the ACA that are of particular help to women. I hope you will read it with an open mind. Jennifer
