House passes bill they call Health Care Reform

Excerpt from a Truthout article.....
"Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), who was the sponsor of an amendment that
would have allowed individual states to create a single-payer system -
essentially a Medicare-for-all bill - voted against the legislation.
Kucinich’s amendment was stripped from the House bill when it was
unveiled more than a week ago."

My thoughts on the matter:

This said it all for me. Instead of allowing individual states to pass some form of Health Insurance Coverage for all; The House passed a bill that bypasses states rights. Isn't this unconstitutional?
I am all for Health Care for all but the House and President is calling this a "single payer option" when it is only a mimicry of this.
This bill now goes to the Senate. I hope they send it back to the House for Dennis Kucinich's amendment. But I am not going to hold my breath.
House passes sweeping Health Care Reform
