Today's Poll

What do you think the June 25 Supreme Court decision upholding health care subsidies means for the future of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as "Obamacare"?
The court has spoken; the debate is over.

I hope this paves the way for a more robust, single-payer health care system.
