I am the public policy director for a large, very progressive faith organization. We believe in science, democracy, full equality for all people (NO exceptions), peace, and justice. We respect other people, but it doesn't mean we share their views. Nice to have a world of progressive thought. Rather like finally getting fresh air after a very smoggy day!
Single payer seems dead legislatively in California, not just as a bill but as an issue. It died not due to insurance industry opposition but due to the outrageous bullying tactics of its supporters. Nice job, BullyProgs.
