One more state paves the way for single payer. Hooray!


Do you think Single Payer can pass the Congress in the near future? Think about it, ClintonKare cost Bill control of the Congress in a GOP landslide...ObamaKare did the same for Obama in the House. Passing or even attempting to pass a major health care overhaul has been terrible for elected Democrats. Why would they go out on a limb again? Members of Congress care more about their re-election than the people. I bet there are several Democrats who would have switched their ObamaKare vote if it meant keeping their seat.

Also it took a straight party line vote in the Senate with a 60-40 advantage to get ObamaKare through. Single Payer was shot down, so why would you think they could get 60 votes this time?

Let's not debate is it's a good idea, because that's a circular argument and neither of us are changing our minds. My question is why do you think it would pass the Congress? (And clearly not passing this Congress)
