28. Only Way This Has Legs...

First...elect about 50 more Democrats to the House and retake the majority. Second...elect 10 more Progressive/Liberal Democratic Senators. A TALL order even in the best of times...but doable if Americans and Democrats truly want a reformed system. Unfortunately this means going up against every powerful lobby group around (just like last time...and loaded with Citizens United money).

The real problem is if Democrats lose seats in November...that will seal any healthcare reform for another generation or longer. It'll once again become a third rail that mostly Democrats will not want to touch.
