    A good bit of his term has seen all or at least half of congress held by the Dems too.
    .
    Funny how during Bush I/II and Reagan the Dems blamed the president for the deficit. Now with the deficit doubling in the past 7 Obama years the president shouldn’t be blamed.
    .
    The fact of the matter is that both parties in all offices are to blame. The problem isn’t fiscal, it is moral, but no one wants to hold people personally accountable for their actions any more (in or out of politics).

    I’ve always been more than willing to help those who CAN’T help themselves. Every year I average about 15% of my income going towards charitable donations. This does not count my food donations and work at nursing homes.
    .
    If, however, you ARE able to help yourself, but won’t, or if you are here illegally or are in some other way on the wrong side of the law…, don’t expect my sympathy.

    “If it hadn’t been necessary to placate conservative Democrats, Obama might have been able to bring in a better health insurance program.”
    .
    Before ACA I only paid $15 co-pays for every doctor visit and the majority of all prescriptions were covered.
    .
    Now my premium is $5 more a month, only sustainment medications are covered (all others are completely out of pocket until the $3,000 deductible is met), and the insurance company has yet to pick up a nickle of any doctor’s visit. To date in 2014 I have paid out over $1,600 in medical bills with insurance picking up nothing.
    .
    For 2015 I have been informed that my premium is to be increased 20%. Oh happy day!!!
    .
    Your Obamacare SUCKS!!! There is no other word for it.
    .
    Better? For who? Certainly not for the working middle class.

    Obviously the Washington Post never consulted Schoolhouse Rock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyeJ55o3El0

    If ignorance is bliss you must live in paradise.
    .
    Do your homework. Congress is made up of two houses, the House of Representatives (the House) and the Senate. The GOP controlled house sent several bills on immigration to the Dem controlled Senate, but like so many other GOP initiated bills, Harry Reid sat on them.
    .
    The last several years haven’t been a Congress that can’t figure out how to get things done, but Democrats saying “We rule, and it is our way or the highway”.
    .
    Case in point look at the ACA. Closed-door Democrat only meetings, approve it before you read, no raching across the aisle, and no GOP votes in favor. Typical Democrat bipartisanship.
    .
    That all being said, the GOP (while flushing the country a little slower than the Dems) are not much better. I think a better result to the past election would have been if every single incumbent had been voted out. It’s hard for those in Washington to see the truth past the glare of their own reflection in the mirror.

    Do your homework. The House passed various bills to help mitigate the immigration issue but they all got derailed by Reid, and would have been vetoed by Obama regardless.
    .
    You see, Obama’s way of bipartisanship is: “you guys do exactly what I want”.
    .
    It was the same with healthcare. Private, closed door Democrat only meetings, no give and take, pass it before you read it, and not a single GOP vote in favor. That is bipartisanship Obama style.

    There goes that liberal mantra again…well the GOP did it so we should be able to do it too, regardless how wrong it was when they did it.
    .
    Does every liberal think that two wrongs make a right?

    .

    This has become the liberal mantra…“well that person on the right did it too!”
    .
    In other words, if a GOP president did something wrong, unethical or illegal then it is perfectly acceptable for the Democrat to do it too. In fact, just watch, they’ll go even further in the wrong direction.
    .
    Hey liberals…news flash…wrong is wrong regardless the party. That’s why this country is going down the drain. Nobody is holding the idiots (left and right) in Washington accountable.

    Not only could we not keep our previous policy which was very good ($15 co-pays, all generic prescriptions covered and minimal deductible on others, plus many other good protections), but our new plan costs us $5 more per month with no prescription coverage except sustainment medications. Not only do I pay more in premiums, but I pay all medical bills out of pocket until I meet $3000 per individual or $$8000 per family. So far I have had to pay of $1600 out of pocket this year…insurance company: $0. (Boy, Obama really stuck it to those evil insurance companies. I alos had to change doctors because my old doctor did not accept the insurance we went to.
    .
    Why did we lose our old plan? Because the plan we had previously was classified as a Cadillac Plan (i.e. it was too good).
    .
    Here is something I just found out today as we go through our annual enrollment cycle. Last year our company was allowed to contribute $1000 to everyone’s Health Savings Account (HSA), which they did. This year the good old government has limited that contribution to only $500. Yes sir, Obama’s government is certainly sticking it to those CEO fat cats.
    .
    You want to see “complete idiocy”? Look at all the loony left that rammed the ACA down america’s throat, and then look in the mirror.

    No. He may be in office, but he does not represent me in any way, shape or form. He is the complete antithesis of what I believe in.
