Will the Supreme court pave the way for Medicare for all?

All they have to do is rule against Obamacare.

4. No, the ACC will pave the way for Medicare for all.

IMHO, that was the intent all along.

8. And not a bad back door at all.

They are using this time to make badly needed changes in Medicare. This will make it a much more viable option for the single source provider/payer.

And the health insurance companies, despite reports to the contrary, hate this plan.

I remain very optimistic.

6. How is the mandate that every employee purchase Medicare Insurance different

than a mandate everybody must have Health Insurance? Or every employee must purchase retirement insurance (Social Security). Both the Medicare and Social Security (FICA) are Mandates, so how are they any different than a Health Insurance Mandate

10. Who's going to vote for it?

You can count out pretty much every single Republican in Congress.

And then you can add the Blue Dogs and conservadems who will also vote against it.
