Without getting into the abortion question, this was the money statement for me.
Does this mean that EVEN THE LEFT anticipates the death of private insurance, and the Right's fears of a slippery slope to single-payer are well founded? Why doesn't the left just admit it is?

It’s REQUIRE. Any insurance plan that didn’t require coverage of abortions wouldn’t be allowed to exist, effectively, after this bill goes into effect.
