Ellen Immergut (among others) argues that referenda function as veto points. She studied healthcare politics in Switzerland, France, and Sweden. Referenda in California 1994 and Colorado 2016 defeated moderate universal healthcare system plans.

Perhaps that isn't always the case. Perhaps this claim fits with many of my biases. Perhaps it only applies to particular issues.

But all my political experience in the US seems to confirm her claim. The last thing the US needs is more veto points!
