"Medicare Extra For All"

The name is dumb, but a victory of sorts.

People forget how much ACA was sold not just as "best possible" but "ACTUALLY, good."* Much of this got lost in the "public option or not public option debate," but it wasn't just bad for reasons hippies like me thought, it was bad on their own described terms by failing to live up to its promises as they seemed to believe.

*yes, yes, it's ACTUALLY better than what came before. I know. No need to tell me.
