    So he can set up a single-payer system in Montana modeled on the one across the border in Saskatchewan.

    Now that's the ticket. Let's repeal Obamacare and replace it with something that will really work! Go, Brian Schweitzer!

    Why not? You don't really BELIEVE all those right-wing talking points about how this is "socialized medicine," do you?

    The ACA was a big disappointment to liberals, in case you weren't aware of that. A single-payer plan is what we want, or failing that at least a public option. What we have is a stopgap measure that won't really solve the problems.

    I like it test it at the state level and see if it works! I personally think MT might pick up some businesses if they create a Single Payor system and employers weren't on the hook to provide healthcare for their employees.
