12. :) But maybe those who COULD? Of course, many cannot

and never will. I just wish people realized those are not us and cut them loose.

It might be a partially positive sign that those on the left who spent the past year calling to repeal-and-replace the ACA, happy enough to piggyback on the GOP's propaganda that it doesn't work, went quiet as the right's phony call for repeal-and-replace moved to actual destroying.

Of course, the previous leader had gone quiet on the subject some time ago, but it still seems likely that, much as groupthink despised it, some of them just aren't radical enough to hail actual destruction of the ACA as a positive step toward single payer.

Maybe nostalgia will even lead to a small measure of new appreciation for something Democrats accomplished and thus for Democrats. And the GOP's going after SocSec and Medicare in 2018.
