  •  which majority is that? (0+ / 0-)

    the majority that sits in congress, or the majority that elects them (such as it is).

    if we take an approach that is TOO incremental, we'll be working on this for a hundred years. and i'm not sure i can face the prospect of reform via a catastrophic spiral -- especially with the accompanying nightmare of the unfortunate few among those opt-outers, who get cancer or get hit by a bus or whatever.

    in any case, it isn't at all clear to me that we couldn't get "pedicare" (medicare for minors) done very quickly, with a determined president and substantial Dem majority. and from there, in one more generation we'd close the gap in the middle.

    I am further of the opinion that the President must be impeached and removed from office!

      I think "pedicare" would be a great place to start. And it wouldn't be long before people got pissed off about losing healthcare at age 18.

      There is some possibility we'll have 60 Democrats in the Senate next year. If so, single-payer could be within reach.
