  •  It's not the lesser of two evils (1+ / 0-)

    and I'm really getting sick of the lying bullshit portraying Democrats in this way.  If you think giving millions of more Americans healthcare who didn't have it is "evil" because it's not even more good, then your system of morality is something you couldn't possibly live by in your own life.  In other words, it's hypocrisy.  Stark, raving, hypocrisy.

    Technology is a compromise: You can use whatever tool you choose, but be assured it will use you back.

    •  I very much DON'T think that the ACA (3+ / 0-)

      Was evil!  It's a very good thing that more Americans have access to healthcare.  But it's not enough.  We MUST keep pushing for more, because there are more Americans not yet covered.  And isn't this a prime example of your thesis?  The Democratic position is Universal Coverage, not just whatevery we can get at the time, and walk away, leaving millions uncovered and unrecognized.  The ACA was a good start.  Now we need to be willing to fight for the next step.

      •  Then stop calling progress "evil." (0+ / 0-)

        The only way to get to the goals I spoke about is to make whatever level of progress can be made, whenever it can be made, all while remaining strongly focused on the ultimate objective.
