Here's the thing, if it did pass (very unlikely, IMHO) then it's nearly 100% certain that at least California and probably New York would implement "Berniecare" with the block grants.

Taking those huge populations off the insurance rolls would mean taking the populations of two relatively healthy states from the US "group". Insurance costs in all other states would rise, thus making "Berniecare" more attractive in those states. Other blue states would follow suit.

Business/Industry would be streaming towards those blue states, because the costs for their medical expenses would be much lower, and thus increasing profits.

Which is why the insurance industry and the entire medical industry are out in force against this bill, and wasn't out in such force against the others. They see this as the END for them.

And that's why it won't pass.
