15. Obama won't tank the bill - our new friend Scotty B. will Kill the Bill and happy days again
which means more of what we got now for the foreseeable future - a dysfunctional health care system

Anyone that thinks we will see single payer health care in the US in the next 7 years is a fool.

Kill the Bill = insipid status quo suckage...
