GOP suits may lead to single payer healthcare system sooner

Reading the grounds on which the attorneys general of states with Tea Party and fringe GOP right-wing leanings intend to sue heartens me. If they were to prevail on the grounds that people should not be forced to buy private insurance, then clearly the only alternative would be an expansion of Medicare and Medicaid and the public option. So let them have at it!


That's right

Medicare buy-in is developing a head of steam in Congress, and even among far right advocates (like Foxtrot's wife). I see it coming to a head soon ... and I also see it passing through some kind of reconciliation action on the underlying Medicare legislation.
