It was worth it

Obviously, November 2 was painful for we libbies, and there's been much discussion about whether or not it was the ACA that cost House Democrats their majority. My answer: So what if it did? Crafting good policy (and that's what the ACA is) is why we send these people to Washington in the first place, not to keep their damned majority. Obviously, you can't govern if you don't win, but there are some achievements that are worth risking your majority, and the Affordable Care Act was one of them. Bill Saletan at Slate has more to say on this. Give him a read.
