And don’t forget that as soon as Obama leaves office Obamacare will essentially be an orphan. The right hates it for obvious reasons (it is a government takeover of health care, it has Obama’s name attached, etc.) but many on the left never really wanted it either. The base of the Democratic party never trusted the central role insurance companies play in Obamacare and many of them still pine for a fully government-run single payer health care system. The current Obamacare framework will have to fail before they can push for further government control.
So take a step back and what will Obama have really accomplished? A blah-economy, with unacceptable unemployment, stagnant growth and rising income inequality; a resurgent al-Qaeda, and a signature domestic accomplishment already on life-support.
If that is greatness, our country is truly in trouble.
