166. And when it doesn't happen

they will all turn on him- like they did with Obama when he didn't deliver everything fast enough. I support SP but there is no realistic path that I can see to achieving it on a national level in at least the next 4 (and possibly more) years. I think that it would be best if we could find a strongly blue state or two with solid Democratic/progressive majorities (i.e. California) to set up a SP system that works to demonstrate that it can work well. In the meantime, we need to hold the WH, work on gaining solid progressive majorities in Congress, and tweaking ACA to make it more progressive (i.e. Public Option). Getting any kind of progressive tweaking of the ACA past Ryan's padlocked Republican House is going to be really challenging but fighting for SP with a Republican House (at least) is akin to tilting at windmills.
