The consequence of which was to extend the pain and suffering of millions of unemployed 4 more years beyond that necessary. And,
    *He tried but did not fully succeed in extending HealthCare coverage to 16% of the American population, that previously had no such insurance whatsoever. Nonetheless, what they have now is access to much better than the indignity of none whatsoever because Privatized Insurance companies were milking a high-priced Cash-cow. They still are, because an ignoramus of an HofR would not allow a fully nationalized system as all other developed countries have adopted at much lower costs.

    Otherwise, your comment is like so many others on this forum - one-liners without factual evidence from those desperate to justify their electoral choice as PotUS ...
    Obamacare was a totally failure most would rather pat the penalty than pay the outrageous premiums ! Obama added more debt than ALL the presidents before him !!! Obama failed our Country and our troops !

    Oh, come off it. Enough of the Obama this and Obama that.

    Obama was gifted by Dunderhead Dubya THE WORST RECESSION SINCE THE GREAT ONE in the 1930s! Of course debt skyrocketed, as it would in any such circumstance.

    And, as the Employment to Population Ratio improves most of that debt will diminish. Like others in this forum, you fail to understand that failure to pay-off US debt does not mean other nations are going to come to repossess America. At the very worse, all that happens is that interest-rates rise so maintenance is more costly.

    In fact, other countries love to buy T-Notes the revenue of which is necessary for the US to balance its books.

    More over, if you really want to reduce the deficit, why not reduce that portion most responsible for it! Guess which one it is in this pie-chart of Non-Discretionary Spending:


    So, do answer the question, "What do you propose for reducing the humongous DoD spending that represents more than half of the total budget?

    I'm awaiting your answer with bated-breath ...

    150B is a drop in the bucket compared to years and years and years of DoD budgets above $500B - and all for what? Our misadventure in Iraq, was it worth it? All it produced was ISIS (that was formulated in a military camp run by the US Army of ex-Hussein soldiers).

    I can nitpick arguments too!

    But that is not the point. The point is THIS:


    Since 1965, more than half a century ago, 40 million fellow-Americans (equivalent to the states of California and Idaho) find themselves below the Poverty Threshold, which is $24K a year for a family of four. And because they cant make their way out, they turn to "other means", which lead to this:


    As the stats keep telling us ... the US is not the nicest place on earth. And stats also tell us, "in fact it is highly dangerous place".

    But, who cares about statistics! That's for intellectual nerds!

    Isn't it ... ?
