With the September 30th legislative deadline fast approaching, the Republicans are bringing their last ditch effort to repeal and replace Obamacare to a fever pitch.
They are intensifying efforts to pass a bill that will be little more than political posturing for their conservative base. Again they are attempting to do so without the benefit of CBO scoring or open discussion/argumentation on the floor of either house.
On Monday CNN is hosting a 'town hall' style 'debate' between the sponsors of this 11th hour bill and two of the most outspoken critics of the proposal.
There are those who are saying that the Republicans' last minute offering will fall short and die on its own and that the Sanders single payer stance is the contrast the Republicans need to promote and succeed with the passage of their bill.
Others say this may be the chance to highlight the crucial flaws in the Republican proposition while advancing the cause for universal single payer health care.
So, here's the question:
Is the upcoming Graham/Cassidy-Klobuchar/Sanders debate a golden political opportunity or a monumental political mistake?
