15. Because the desperation of those not having access to healthcare
will be much wider spread (remember--11,000 lose their coverage every DAY

And those in Congress (which demographics alone tell us will have more Dems in 10) will be less able to ignore the problem. It will be so urgent in fact that something might get done.

Just my guess.
