    We all want single payer.

    But it’s really easy to sit here in Massachusetts and whine about not getting our ponies, when we should be out busting our buns to get Senators and Congressmen elected in the purple states so that next time around there will in fact be a supermajority of good guy representatives to vote in good legislation.

    If you are not willing to help out, the least you can do is get off our backs while we try to do the heavy lifting. Throwing rocks at our head is, in fact, counter productive.
