Several obvious holes in your message, here. Number one, that poll was taken in the context of the existing healthcare system. If you can be troubled to undergo the intellectual strain of trying to remember something that wasn't in the news in the past 72 hours, the current healthcare system was actually passed by the democrats, exclusively, when their closed-door process culminated in a vote that came down almost perfectly along party lines. Implying that the current system, and therefore the particular insurance shopping process therein, are the preference of the republicans, is misleading AF. You also seem to be implying a strawman argument here, framing this conversation as though the only choices are the ACA or Medicare for all. There have been plenty of suggestions from folks on the right, for years now, on how to fix issues that we had with the pre-ACA healthcare system that didn't involve a government takeover of the medical industry, and there continue to be such suggestions. The fact that you don't care to hear them doesn't nullify their existence. Lastly, how about let's NOT ignore your claim that M4A would suit just about everyone's needs better than just about any private plan. Seems to me that's a pretty contentious claim. Why would anyone want to come to a conclusion on this matter without considering that most people prefer their private plan to going on medicare? What makes your opinion on the matter so much more valid than the opinions of the people who'd actually lose those private plans and get shuffled into a one-size-fits-all system, that we should ignore that part of the conversation completely? Correct me if I'm mistaken, but that seems like a MAJOR cop out.
