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