You’d think one of these days that somebody, please, from either side of the aisle, would have the backbone to stand up and say “you know, if you want decent, affordable health care, you have to raise taxes…….and you need a lot more money than just raising them on the rich can supply.”

But, politicians. They think losing, and thus maintaining the status quo even though the status quo is entirely unacceptable, is winning. :-(
