    In the 5th year of his presidency, shouldn't we know if he supports a single-payer type system? This petition will help him fish or cut bait.

    He did not support  the public option, and may have actively opposed it, so I am far from convinced.

      Health care reform is not going to advance any further under Obama.

      If Hillary wins, I see further expansion of health care reform. If a Repub wins, I see massive contraction and maybe elimination.

        is cuts to Medicare. There is a real possibility that the Medicare eligibility age will be increased. If we ever want a sane system, we need to start by expanding the range of debate.

          I think means testing is more likely.

          But we're both just guessing.
