The worse of it all however is Obamacare, hooray for instituting a health care bill that will make everyone pay more for healthcare. Bang up job Barry!

I can't agree with this at all, universal health care in America was desperately needed and his health care package was pretty sensible and didn't destroy HMOs like they predicted. If anything it doesn't go far enough, I wanted him to gut the current system but realistically he couldn't accomplish that right now due to the make up of Congress.

I am quite happy paying taxes towards meaningful societal contributions that benefit everyone. Some things the government does well and the rest of the world gets by just fine with universal health care.

Obama is mister compromise, he spent most of his first term trying to do so. Our party wasted it thanks to influence from the tea party and we lost many many opportunities for change we wanted. Now the Dems are fed up and doing their own thing, I can't blame them. They've done plenty of dumb things in office but claiming health care and not reaching across the aisle are some of them is dishonest.

I wouldn't mind a universal health care bill that isn't going to cost us all more in the long run. With a public opt out option. Instead we got a bill rammed through congress that's unconstitutional imo but was allowed to stand by classifying it as a tax, rather than the abuse of the commerce clause that it actually is.

If you're going to do health care do it right.

Mister Compromise? Verno, he's spent the last 5 years blaming Bush for every mistake he makes, and blames Congress for everything he can't pin on Bush. That's not in line with what I would call compromise. That's not even in line with leading. You know the one thing he was elected to do.

Not that the GOP isn't also to blame with all the stonewalling they've done since he was first elected either. At the end of the day however, leaders are able to compromise and play nice with the other side. Obama has yet to do that and most likely won't.
