30. As a general matter, why do people that say X shouldn't be passed because it doesn't go far enough?

For any X?

I would dispute everything you are saying about the bill. But assuming for a second that you are correct that the bill is less than half a loaf (let's call it a tenth of a loaf for argument's sake). Even assuming that, why is it considered reasonable for one to say that it shouldn't be passed? As a general matter? If a bill moves the country in the right direction, why does it matter what fraction of a loaf it is? Why is that even relevant, let alone dispositive? How can people say with a straight face that we shouldn't pass good bills because they aren't good enough?
