106. So, attacking the "Debbie Downers"...

...with an accusation of paid shill? Guess what, if I got paid for being realistic, I wouldn't need to worry about keeping the ACA because I'd be able to get insurance. I've been around long enough to know that things are done in steps. Your blind faith in getting enough votes in the House and Senate to provide single payer is cute as hell. Literally. I fought this fight over decades until I realized that I really don't think like the majority of this country. I sure as hell don't think like the majority of politicians. Being a Progressive is fine and dandy, but thinking you can change the way things have been done for decades overnite is delusional. I learned the hard way. Now, I fight for taking those small steps because I know that's how things really get done. You can call me a Debbie Downer all you want. Childish names won't change logic and reality.

You and the others can go ahead and hope it gets struck down. I'm hoping I can go to a doctor before I have another stroke, the cancer comes back, before I go completely blind, before I'm 50.
