The ACA is a reform for the insurance industry and not a progression to single payer.
People are suffering sticker shock because they haven't had to pay attention to what healthcare actually costs unless they've had health problems before.
Eventually, IMO, people are going to realize that we spend way too much on health care as a country and will demand single payer once the public starts to do a cost/benefit analysis as costs continue to rise.
