They are split - should we burn it to the ground or blow it up with dynamite? No good future. Better for Dayton to ship it back to the feds.

And should we continue to be the only developed nation without universal health care? There were start-up problems with SS and Medicare, for those of you who read, and no one is calling to repeal them. Party of dinosaurs continues to lobby for the buggy-whip industry. Better to make healthcare work, and replace insurance company unique system, that makes billions for them, and ranks US healthcare as mediocure and very high-priced. Good luck running on the theme of supporting wealthy corporations and taking health care access for all away. Imagine the bumper stickers.

All basic health care should be provided by non-profit health maintenance organizations or patient owned cooperatives. It is the for-profit nature of our health care system that drives up costs for the benefit of share holders and CEO's - the patients are seen as profit generating entities, not humans in need. I've belonged to a non-profit health maintenance organization since 1973 - they concentrate on my health and prevention of health related problems. I wish that everyone had that type of care.
