23. Win the battle, lose the war
Like I said, if you are arguing the issues with your relative, that's one thing. I'm not even interested in having that argument with you because that's not my point. Your points about insurance and health care are valid.

All I'm saying is that for the purposes of this election, it's not a helpful argument to make. And for the purposes of getting SOMETHING helpful to Americans, it's not a useful argument to make. You could say until we get corporate farms out of the food business, people will go hungry. Does that mean we stop the food stamps program? Don't keep people from getting help they need now by putting up ideological roadblocks.
