    hell that's how Canada did it and yes they are doing it because of the ACA not in spite of it.

      Shoot for single-payer, get the public option. Shoot for the public option (kill it in backroom deals) get the ACA.

      It was the golden opportunity, but we didn't take it because the Republicans and special interests would have made it a huge fight.

      Well, of course they would. If you haven't noticed, they still did.

      Clearly single-payer was just something Obama was not interested in because he didn't want to actually rock the boat with insurance companies. And that's "fine", but don't pretend that it was something Obama really wanted to do but did not because it was "politically impossible".

      Banking on the American people to be able to sort all this out and declare the adult in the room the winner is a very big bet. -Digby

        or reality based especially when the long term outcome is almost certain to be government healthcare of some sort.
