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  
doubt they wouldn't flinch at increasing the overall budget as  
necessary to accomplish it, and figure out how to *actually* pay for  
it later.

In fact, I'm willing to take some action on propositions around this.   
You game?
