When I explained this to a woman in the grocery store (yes, the Laydee strikes up conversations everywhere) I saw the lightbulb go off in her head.

I have tried to remain out of the fray regarding this health care battle (because I was SO vociferous during the primary and it was THIS specific issue, I thought Michelle Obama's close ties to hospitals chairs coupled with Barack Obama's CENTER RIGHT political stripes would stop real health care reform before it started. I will argue the center right thing with anybody who cares to engage, but that Michelle Obama was closely tied to a hospital board is a stubborn little fact, thus, no real change will happen to the status quo)

But I agree with Ed Shultz that *we* can change this.

I think we can still tilt this to single payer, if you just say Medicare for everyone. If you have an ss#, you're in. If you want out because you think gov't can't do anything, OPT out.

We should just start *demanding* a PRIVATE OPTION. :hi:
