The bill was passed 60-39 in the Senate. QED.

And why isn't it a single payer system like they all wanted?

They didn't all want it. If they had, it would have been.

personally I am mad at the democrats for this - a single payer system would have been 100's of times better than a system where we are forced to buy insurance with coverages we do not want from for profit insurance corporations. If they were going to force through what ever they wanted why the heck did they choose this?

Because they expected to face an even stronger negative response from the right over single payer.  Remember, those idiots call single-payer "communism" or "socialism".

Thank you democrats for forcing the American people to make the insurance corporations rich

It's a baby step toward single payer.

absolutely stupid - - what kind of moron thinks you make something more affordable by inserting for profit corporations in the middle of it?

The Republicans do.  They call it "fostering competition".
