The first hurdle was the pwoer to compel. The next is the power to nationalize.
Pretty strait forward actually, given that a direct-to-single-payor had no chance whatsoever of being passed in the United States. Like anything, the only route is one of steps towards a goal.
Agree to disagree on a basic idealogical level.
Compelling people to purchase a PRIVATE health insurance is by no means socialist. It does NOT make it one step closer to a single pay system. How does it do that?
Stop repeating the same broken record nonsense that you post with regards to Obamacare. No true socialist is happy with it. Not one.
Your constant linking Obamacare to socialist ideology is pathetically wrong. No matter how many times you keep repeating this nonsense, you are still wrong. I am embarrassed for you. Please dont continue to make yourself look silly, you are better than that.
