The implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was a defining moment for our country, providing millions of previously-uninsured Americans with health care.

Achieving that milestone was not without difficulty. Passage of the original legislation was rushed, the rollout of the marketplace was beset with issues, and the launch of the website was problematic. But at the beginning of any foundational legislation -- Social Security, Medicare, and veterans' benefits among them -- there are bound to be problems with implementation. That doesn't mean we give up on them altogether.

What I've heard, traveling around the state, is that there are provisions in the ACA that people like very much. The elimination of pre-existing condition exclusions, the ban on lifetime caps, and the ability to keep dependents on one's insurance until they are 26 -- these are all positive steps forward. Rather than crossing our arms and repeatedly saying "NO!," we should work across party lines to move forward. We can work to correct some of the issues in the ACA - but not without willing partners on both sides of the aisle.
