    •  Because of the lack of single-payer. (0+ / 0-)

      That was the point of the comment thread you may not have read before reflexively defending the President.

        Where did I defend or criticize the President?

        I was simply pointing out that the number of uninsured at present does not have to do with the PPACA, but John Roberts.

          Read upwards, and it will hopefully become clearer.

          Well, if the tag line you sport wasn't enough, it seems the content in itself certainly constituted a call to battle.

          I think many of us who would have preferred fighting for single-payer also understand that part of something is better than all of nothing.

          In the same vein, the idealism that stokes the fight for single-payer and other progressive causes where we feel our President has let us down, and not held true to his promise, should be kindled and celebrated, not mocked and disparaged. It is our best hope for a better future.

          So, yes, let us not become blinded to reality, but let us also not lose sight of our ultimate goals, either.
