My understanding is that coverage was expanded at the bottom end for tens of thousands of uninsured.  I wonder if single payer would fly down there.  


Clearly not, and Obama understood this despite strong criticism from the "progressives" in his own party.   The bottom end was already insured by federal and state programs.  The ACA (Obamacare) addressed other issues like pre-existing conditions and students, while removing choices/access for privately insured individuals, and added a new layer of taxes and penalties, corporate mandates to provide insurance, etc.
