3. "endangering the future of universal health care"

how does one endanger a fantasy.

Until somebody explains to me how we get 60+ votes in the Senate with the current red / blue states, any new M4A or other UHC proposal... and I mean a serious explanation as to how do we not only win back the Senate, keep the House, and fight the special interests and the huge brain washing of the US electorate to oppose this... we pass this legislation for Sanders or Warren to sign.

We passed the ACA and it cost us control of the Senate and the House... and likely contributed to Trump being elected. Now the ACA is more popular than it has ever been... and the answer is "let's chuck it all and start over... and if you are employed you are going to lose your company provided insurance".

The candidates can debate M4A all they want... not one has come out and explained how they intend to get it placed into law. Because they can't.

Back when the ACA was being debated... public option was the "bridge too far" but everyone here at DU (and I was around then) was like "we must have it"... only a few were saying "yeah, but the REAL answer is single payer". Now, all of a sudden, public option "endangers the future of universal health care".
