    since you agree that single payer could not have passed the senate, even had the filibuster been repealed, I withdraw my comments and my criticism.

    My apologies.

      because I think Obama was and is against single-payer from the beginning.  However, if single-payer had been "on the table," there would have had to be a more serious national debate about single-payer than there actually was in 2009, which would probably have improved what the ACA eventually became.
