How Much Do Democrats Want Single-Payer?

If today's news is any indicator they want it a lot. So much that they are willing to vote against any reform that does not include a "public option." In a CNN interview the US Represntative Anthony Weiner (D-NY) said " he and many others in the House will not support a healthcare plan without the public option. He believes in a single-payer system. On the Sean Hanitty show long-time Democratic strategist Bob Beckel said "we have been trying to pass healthcare for 50 years." However, do not believe they have abandoned it. They will try to sneak it through in some form.
