Again, I will note that the Affordable Care Act is not without its problems (for example), but given that our choice is not between universal coverage and the ACA, but instead between the ACA and maintaining the status quo where you are welcome to die oh well fuck you shoulda got yourself some bootstraps (which, by the way, is Candidate Romney's position), the ACA is preferable, in my estimation.

My condolences to Ms. Miller.
