Obamacare & a Single-Payer Option?

Without the threat of not being re-elected looming, could the President get some sort of additional provision of Obamacare to become a single-payer "Medicare Part E" mandate?

1. Right now? No. The version we got now BARELY squeaked through.

2. Great response.

Places the blame squarely where it belongs.

3. Not a Chance

Democratic Presidents don't get a "honeymoon" where the other party cooperates with them.
That is a privilege exclusive to Republican Presidents.
