OTOH, Obama has, with his very own lips, gums, and vibrating vocal cords, stated that these compromises 'pave the way' to the 'desired end result'
Public option paves the way to single payer, paving the way to universal health care and government provided care as a right.
Environmental restrictions pave the way to cap and trade, paving the way to coal, nuclear and fossil fuels becoming so expensive that government programs can replace them with renewables.
Government intrusion into healthcare paves the way into a shared responsibility for healthy citizens, paving the way for governmental guidance of diet and exercise habits.
These are Obama enunciated rationales, not my personal fever dream concoctions. But again, you know this but prefer to mischaracterize and lie for your little precious patch of turf.
I'm pretty sure you can attribute Ryan's updated budget as a gateway to his intended budget, which he revealed a couple years ago.
Moderate measures are just that, usually presented by one side as a gateway to a more ideological solution.
To pretend that's just a Democratic tactic is delusional.
