    This a historic bill that is only for four years should it be signed. Labor still has and always will have the right to bargain their pay and if it does not work it will be repealed.

    Isn’t the corporate health care, with large administrative costs, the reason health care goes up astronomically?

    Isn’t it time for “Medicare for All”?
