There is, no doubt, a result that will allow us to rack up a maximum partisan point total. It may not, in fact, be the “light Obamacare on fire, then urinate on the ashes” option. I do not care. It is a foul and dishonest law that was conceived in arrogance, nurtured on spite, and delivered via trickery and disdain. Killing it dead will be a meritorious act – so let it be killed, for the sake of principle. Which is a good and sufficient reason to do anything, cynicism be damned.
And if we don’t get sufficiently rewarded for standing on principle? Well, nobody ever said that life was fair.
