I fave you a Huffington post story proving it was Democrats who were killing single payer long before any Republicans were even involved

Again, single payer and the public option are two different things and were two different debates. If you are going to continue with this dishonest approach there is no point to discussion.

Exactly the same as Obamacare.

No, not the same at all. The Obamacare bills and amendments were debated for months before a Senate passage that was an entire six months later in the process. Republicans attacked it as unconstitutional for many weeks before it passed. Specific provisions of it were plucked to dishonestly claim the bill had “death panels.” Have you forgotten all that.

Have you forgotten the lengthy public debate over the public option made possible by that option publicly appearing in earlier versions of the bill before being removed?

Whether you feel most Americans opposed it or not when it passed, they did so because they were able to see it, long before it passed Congress.

But it is typical of a Trump supporter to lie about history all of us can even remember. They lie about everything, just like the target of their personality cult.
