  •  Agreed, but without this... (2+ / 0-)

    Millions would be without anything, and tens of thousands - at minimum - would die because they are too poor or sick to have coverage. Medicare for all is THE goal but this is a needed waypoint on the road there.

    •  Toe in the door is still there - now push harder! (2+ / 0-)

      That's a metaphor we need to use more often. The ACA is a toe in the door, the lawsuit was an attempt to slam the door on the toe, but the toe is still there - now let's push harder and see how long it takes to get all the way in!

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!

      •  If this was struck down, we would be 20-30 yrs... (0+ / 0-)

        ...from any meaningful reform. We still have a way to go, but the road is much, much shorter than it would have been.
