In politics, it is results that count. Republicans criticize the Affordable Care Act and they also criticize the compromises that made it possible. I too, was disappointed with some of the compromises made, but without them, there would have been no Affordable Care Act. Compromise is a means to an end. It should not be any means to an end, but some ends justify some means.

Speaking of results, consider the results of a Romney/Ryan victory in November.

  1. Repeal of the Affordable Care Act and no replacement.
  2. The end of Medicare as we know it.
  3. Privatization of Social Security.
  4. War with Iran and the blocking of the Strait of Hormuz.
  5. The Great Depression 2.
