  •  I wouldn't trust governors and legislatures to (0+ / 0-)

    be that progressive, they simply aren't.

    It might be nice for a few states like Vermont, everywhere else the insurance lobbies will rule. They sure do in CA.

    •  It's not progressive, it's greed (0+ / 0-)

      And that is the magic.

      Provide enough federal funding (including from people like me who are more than willing to pay a few hundred a month in premiums) for a Medicare + 5 option and the governors will jump all over it.

      Just like my oh-so-red politicians here in Utah have jumped all over the stimulus money.
