    Stripping PPACA of the Republican mandate would make it a truly Democratic system. Who would oppose that?

    We need to not only get rid of the Republican mandates but also move forward with publicly-funded healthcare. That's the only way to get costs down. As long as you are forcing people to pay for-profit rates you'll never get healthcare costs back in line.

    Can't this be amended to include a provision that the federal government will pay for all essential healthcare? It's such a no-brainer that even Hatch and Alexander should sign on.
