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.
