View Diary: Four gutless Dems kill single-payer in California (212 comments)

  •  Then why did they include a clause in the ACA (0+ / 0-)

    that allows states to do single payer? If you include little Vermont, you can't exclude the big states.

    Your argument doesn't make sense in light of that simple little fact.

    If they want to kill single payer forever, just don't include that clause. Don't let any states do it.

    Occam's Razor.

    •  They *blocked* single payer for 7 years. (0+ / 0-)

      That's nothing to praise.

      •  Guess Vermont is violating the law then. (0+ / 0-)

        That's gonna be interesting.

        •  Vermont hasn't *got* single payer. (0+ / 0-)

          Repeating it does not make it so.

          What Vermont has is (virtually) Universal Coverage.

          The two are not synonyms.

          The Secretary Of Health and Human Services may grant waivers allowing States to have Single Payer systems starting in 2017.

          Until then, blocked.

          Fear is your only God.
