25. Poster, please. What in hell does what most people want have to do with what gets through Congress?

Most people want sensible gun control. Why doesn't that legislation go through? Lobbyists. When Obama was elected, something like 75% of people polled were strongly for a public option. Why didn't that go through? Well, that's been debated on DU for years.

ACA was totally different from Medicare for All, so your question about that is out of left field.

Sorry, this has to be my last reply on this thread.
