     if all fifty states were completely on-board."

    I think that is part of what brought me around to some extent--the idea that the Roberts Court stuck it to the ACA with the opt-out being possible. That said to me that despite its flaws, the ACA was a threat.

    And it must still be, if the Kochs are still going after it.  

    This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

      for the precedent it can set. Doesn't esp. care about poor getting healthcare, or even getting health insurance, as far as I can see.

      Sure once I was young and impulsive, I wore every conceivable pin. Even went to socialist meetings, learned all the old union hymns. Ah, but I've grown older and wiser. And that's why I'm turning you in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u52Oz-54VYw

        that too. I just don't understand why more folks aren't concerned about half the damn states not even being on-board. We were told again and again that they all needed to be included "for the numbers to work".

        Did I believe "numbers" maybe I shouldn'ta oughta believed? ;)
