Staying the Repeal Course

"Stay the course."
--Gabriel Martin (The Patriot)

Rand Paul digs his heels deeper w.r.t. the Obamacare 'replacement.' The Establishment is working on co-opting other senate holdouts here and there and is predictably painting Paul as an island--a selfish island of an individual who would rather see 'the country' suffer under the ACA than compromise on some kind of replacement socialized medicine program.

For principled people, however, those principles are not open to compromise. Paul knows that the best (only) chance of ACA repeal is if he stays the course.

Do Not Compromise

A scribe then approached and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” Another of his disciples said to him, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.” But Jesus said to him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”
~Matthew 8:19-23
