    I know that is the holy grail isn't it? That wouldn't have been attacked as a tax, a government intrusion on people's liberties? Any move we make on Health Care will be attacked as a tax and "goverment takeover" so I don't see how saying the GOP is going to say mean things is news.

      With a single payer I can go and tell people, you will be covered, no preexisting conditions, no taking away your insurance, it will be cheaper than what your paying, it'll be just like Medicare.

      Average people don't care about government intrusion crap, they don't even mind paying taxes if they think they're getting something good in return (see Medicare and Social Security), but if they think they will be forced to buy insurance and the price they pay will be completely up to the insurance companies and they've just seen their insurance premiums jump by 50% in the last 3 years, they're not going to be happy campers.
