Response to BumRushDaShow (Reply #2)

24. Given that Bernie Sanders says that there were only 10 or so Senators who would vote for it,

the problem is NOT that "Baucus torpedoed it. Baucus was a key person charged with getting a bill that could pass the Senate. That meant ultimately getting a bill that EVERY Democrat would vote for. He needed 60 votes - and there were JUST 4 months when there were 60 Democrats in the Senate. (Due to it taking a long time to get Franken in and then getting a replacement for Kennedy. )

There is no reason to think that single payer has any chance of passing.
