...to be fair, Romney got it from the Heritage Foundation.

Look, the ACA is a definite improvement over the pre-ACA status quo, no question, AND it is certainly one of the signature accomplishments of Obama's two terms.

But Obama himself said that logically, if one was buiding a health system from scratch, a SPHC system would be the way to go- morally, fiscally, etc.

It is a measure of how successful conservatives have been in moving the overton window, in that what once were conservative proposals (look at carbon credits, as another example) now are pilloried as the most liberal policies anyone could hope to achieve.

Which is PRECISELY WHY it is so important, vital even, that good Democratic Senators like Warren and Harris and Gillibrand and Booker and Franken are signing on to Single Payer in principle. We need to move that window BACK.

Here, this is my last "overreaction" to this thread.








There. I've made the point I wanted to make, ignore it or don't- carry on. No one is going to melt if you continue to use a tired and patently false trope to try and make this point. Enjoy.
