Michael Moore: Supreme Court Healthcare Ruling a Victory on the Path to Single Payer

http://www.democracynow.org/2012/6/29/michael_moore_supreme_court_healthcare_ruling

The Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature bill, clearing the way for the largest revamp of America’s healthcare system since the 1960s. We get reaction from acclaimed filmmaker Michael Moore, whose 2007 documentary, "Sicko," tackled many failures of the U.S. healthcare system. "This really is a huge victory for our side, in spite of all of my concerns with this law," Moore says. "We have to work toward Medicare for all, so that everyone’s covered ... We can’t allow private insurance — people making a profit off of people getting sick." [includes rush transcript]

1. Thank you, Michael

 

You need to state the obvious over and over again here, because there's a lot of shmucks who are insisting this is just a giant corporate give-a-way with no benefit to anyone but them. THIS IS THE WAY TO SINGLE PAYER. Let's get there.

2. I think history will show that those who believe this are mistaken

 

There's no undoing this. Not unless it's totally taken down by universal single payer. Which will not happen. Our masters will not allow it.

5. Good job, Debbie Downer! Gotta keep the masses from having any hope for their futures!!

 

SOME of us understand that federal laws can be changed. Apparently you think they can't.
