    •  That presumes striking down ACA (0+ / 0-)

      would have doomed the insurance industry, which is just not a logical conclusion. Had ACA been struck down entirely, we would be back to the former 'insurance for some and sick people are on their own' system.
      There would not have been an instant popular revolt to install a single payer system within the next month.

      It would have been another 10 years until any sort of reform would have taken place.
      Under ACA, any state can set up a single payer in 4 years and Vermont is working on a waiver to set one up right now.
      Striking down halfway because you think that will suddenly create perfection is a fool's errand.
