5. To be fair to Conyers, it's not a resolution.

Its legislation. Similarly, Jim McDermott has introduced a single payer bill every year since 1993. My question was simply whether or not Jake Tapper informed his audience about these facts.

Your point about whether or not a single payer/medicare for all system is a better way to deliver universal health care than working through the existing ACA is something that needs to be very carefully considered.

Something tells me that the current infotainment industry that touts itself as "journalism" is more interested in boosting ratings by stoking divisions than in promoting a serious policy discussion.

Policy is boring. That's why we saw endless hours of Trump rallies on the "news" last summer, while the Democrats' policy speeches and round table discussions received virtually no air time.
