33. Given that Single Payer has not been adopted in a single state yet (including VERMONT)

I think that it's fair at least to say that there are still some kinks that need to be ironed out first. And I think that the ultimate goal is the same (a more affordable, universal accessible system) with everybody (but Republicans), but some people have completely legitimate differences in strategy about how we get there. Sanders seems to prefer the hammer and nail approach and getting a SP system in place in one fell swoop. Others prefer a more gradual strategy (i.e. adding a Public Option to ACA), which I happen to believe is a more practical and realistic approach to moving in the direction of a SP system. I don't think it's fair to automatically assume that just because some of us might think we should go about things a different way, it doesn't make us "concern trolls".
