  •  Three days after PPACA was signed... (1+ / 0-)

    ...the DC Circuit ruled in SpeechNOW.org v. FEC.

    Until we fix that and Citizens United, we will not be getting a health plan that undermines private insurers. It just won't happen.

    PPACA was passed by a congress elected before Citizens United. It was signed just before SpeechNOW. Those two precedents would likely prevent an event like that from ever happening again. That's the big hurdle we're facing right now: bigger than the filibuster, bigger than the Court. Campaign finance reform is the headwater from which all future reforms will have to flow.
