Wasn't that the real message?

Paraphrase:

What loons! They should be grateful for the crumbs they got, f!@#ing ingrates!

Laugh, laugh, smirk, smirk. God what a bunch of hopped up crazies. Now let me work in a Kucinich reference. That should finish them off. Gotta run. Meeting Rahm for a beer. He's onto a great new education venture fund.

who wants it.

100% of the country could "want" single payer (where want is defined as an affirmative response to variously-worded poll questions). But as long as 80%+ are still satisfied with their insurance arrangements, people are not going to turn their response into actually electing single payer candidates. After all, the last 30 Congresses have had little more than negligible single payer support outside of a core set of districts in the House where Democrats outnumber Republicans in massive numbers.

If the people really wanted to, there is nothing stopping them from throwing the bums out and changing that. But they consistently refuse to do so.
