Yesterday, @DrSriram (who I have great respect for) snidely claimed that those who support a PO over M4All define "universal" coverage as "excluding reproductive rights."

I noted in passing that some (not all) M4All folks are willing to do just that. This was his response: 1/
So I decided to check something. Now, obviously this isn't remotely scientific and I have no idea who most of those who voted are. HOWEVER... 2/
You'll see that several folks who responded appear to be pretty sincere both in their argument for doing exactly this *if* that's what it took.

One, in fact, is the co-chair of the Detroit DSA Single Payer community...who I also respect. 3/
I'm not trying to pull a "gotcha!" here, I'm just pointing out that there's a wide range of views about controversial issues EVEN WITHIN A SEEMINGLY MONOLITHIC much so that even some within that group may not realize it.
Personally, I'd vote "no"...but of course I'm not a M4All activist in the first place, and the poll wasn't addressed to me.

📣 THE BIG ONE: CALIFORNIA: #ACA Medi-Cal expansion enrollment up 17% since COVID hit; total Medi-Cal enrollment up 9%:…
⚠️ If the Supreme Court strikes down the #ACA (their ruling could come as soon as TOMORROW), up to 5.85 MILLION Californians would lose their healthcare coverage, in most cases likely almost immediately.
HEY HEALTHCARE TWITTER: Does anyone know what the heck happened to *non-ACA* Medi-Cal enrollment in Sept/Oct 2017?? I find it difficult to believe that 2 million people suddenly enrolled in a single month w/out any major expansion policy going into effect. cc: @aewright

👏👏👏 WA, CO & NV have now each passed their own versions of a Public Option (WA's has actually been running for a year already).

There's caveats on all three--WA & CO's are only "quasi-public," while NV's won't actually be implemented for a few years...but this is still huge.
Here's my write-up about Washington State's "Cascade Care 2.0" quasi-PO program:…

🚨🚨🚨 Yeah, here we go again: The fate of the #ACA & healthcare coverage for *up to 35 million* Americans could be decided THIS MORNING.…
As @CMSGov confirmed yesterday, the total number of Americans who would lose healthcare coverage if the Supreme Court strikes down the #ACA is likely over 31 million...and possibly as high as 35 million by my estimates in a worst-case scenario.…
Anyway, as always, @SCOTUSblog will be live-blogging this morning's opinions, which start at 10am. Opinions are posted every 10 minutes. There's 23 cases left to announce from this session, presumably between now and June 30, minus weekends.…

--Vermont has vaccinated 63.3% of their *entire* population
--17 states +DC have vaccinated >50% of their *entire* populations
--Mississippi is no longer the least-vaccinated state! They've bypassed Alabama. Image
--Massachusetts & DC should break 60% of their *total* populations vaccinated in the next few days
--Delaware & Minnesota should break 50% in the next few days
--Missouri & Indiana should break 40% in the next few days
--Idaho & Louisiana should break 35% in the next few days Image
Here's all 50 states +DC broken out by education (% of population over 25 with a bachelor's degree or higher). Strong correlation but not as strong as the partisan chart: Image

A few years back I was rushed by my wife to the ER with agonizing pain at 4am. I feared it was appendicitis. It turned out to just be a nasty kidney stone...but how the hell was I supposed to know that at the time???
When the bill showed up, it was $600 thanks to my being insured. "Official" price was $6,000.
