A safe assumption, I'd say. "Universal health care" has been THE
defining issue of the Democratic party since at least 1992. They're
not going to miss this opportunity to take a shot at it, and I have no

necessary to accomplish it, and figure out how to *actually* pay for
In fact, I'm willing to take some action on propositions around this.
