    As I said best way to handle Obama is making him sign or veto legislation. They need to alter Obamacare, because it doesn't save people money like was promised. I'd like to see it repealed because of the way it was passed, and the entire healthcare debate redone. Healthcare needs to be addressed, but not like it was.

    I respectfully disagree. Bush's Medicare Part D started off extremely unpopular, and the web site didn't work when it was first rolled out. Now it is working quite smoothly, and is benefiting seniors. IMHO, Bush's decision on this was an excellent one, and Part D is now part of the system. Same thing with Obamacare, which was taken directly from the Heritage Foundation model that Romney used as governor of Massachusetts. The GOP may talk about defunding it, but I doubt that they will actually be dumb enough to attempt it. The crazies will keep talking, but the mainstream GOP will keep it, since they are now finally exerting control over the party.

    NOTE: Republicans attempted to kill Social Security several times after it was enacted. How did that one go?
