17. he said what he wanted in his speech
That it won't be for people who have insurance through their job, probably only 5% will use it, and he was perfectly ok if there was no PO as in co-opts or some other worse alternative.

He's not going to say he wants it for everyone or that he gives a shit if it has a PO strong or otherwise. He even said people needed to take responsibility to supply themselves with health insurance (whether they can afford it or not) and compared it to mandated auto insurance.

He's made it abundantly clear what he wants and that's why he's not pushing for a PO or a strong PO or Medicare for all or anything that will be available to everyone.

This is a scam designed to give extraordinary business to insurance companies so they can recieve fat campaign donations from them so those donations won't go to Repukes instead. The biggest clue that whatever we end up with will be shit is that they won't let it go into effect until well after the next presidential election because they know that once it goes into effect it will SUCK BIG TIME and the Dems will be to blame.
