Missing the goal for the means

We all want the same goal: affordable, effective, universal, now.

Many are convinced that single payer or, barring that, a public option, are essential for that. These are the means.

Not everyone is convinced of that yet. When you assume that the means are required in order to meet the goal it is easy to conclude that those who are unsure on the means are unsure on the goal.

That is insulting (unnecessarily so).

This is the mistake I see many making when they cry "Give me Public Option or Give me Death!"

They might just get it.
