I'm surprised he hasn't done it yet. Having a bill in light of Covid it would help him in Nov.
I just do not believe his working class voters won't vote for it. Take Obama's name off of ACA, they'd vote for it.
I remember the fight over medicare when Kennedy proposed it in '62. Seriously: the fight over it was a lot more fierce than ACA. BHO got ACA passed in about a year. Medicare took two or three year and Johnson fought hard to get it passed.
ACA is a Republican like program for national healthcare. I was surprised how hard the GOP fought it.
