We do not all get care locally. People travel overseas for surgery all the time and more will do so in the future.

La-La land at the Commonwealth Fund. Where is the proof? I've spent 44 years working in health insurance - there are pricing variations from year to year, and what we saw in 2012 were price increases that reflect an over-reaction of insurance pricing decisions made in the prior 3 years. Take a look at the pricing reactions for renewals in the first quarter of 2013 - those are proof that PPACA is working.
