    Addy, President Obama ran on policy of crateing jobs and transparent government. Job one was the most expensive healthcare bill in history that costs everyone money but cripples healthcare. Doctors are retiring so they don’t have to deal with it at a time more doctors are needed than ever. The bill itself was a treat. At first, no one was allowed to see it before it was voted on. The Speaker of the House’s famous quote, We have to pass it before we can see what’s in it, pretty well summed it up. Once it was passed and signed into law, we saw it. No one could understand it, but we saw it. As more of it was understood, it was horrible. That was his first demonstration of transparent government. Then, we bailed out the too-big-to-fail automotive industry and the too-important-to-fail banks and stockbrokers apparently, so the big wigs could get billions in bonuses for their work in building cars no one wanted and running the country into a recession. He has added jobs. The new bureaucracies for healthcare and oversight have added 25% to the government payroll. Private sector jobs created, paid for by company profit instead of tax dollars: zero; unless you want to count the California solar cell company that the President used as an example of the green jobs the government was helping create. Five hundred million in guaranteed government loans got it started. It went bankrupt last month without crateing a single solar cell. The list goes on forever. There are many that disagree with me, but the answer is as close as Google.Sorry about the tirade, but I was hoping for the greatness he projected. I’ll take a deep breath and calm down.

    Job one was supposed to be changed to one the Reps had proposed. However, when proposed by a Dem (and a black one at that), they refused that one. So it was nerfed even more to make it palatable to the Reps.

    They only said yes because, as you say, it’s the most expensive and ineffective version of universal healthcare ever produced, and will kill the Dems at election.

    Only possible because all politicians, nearly without exception, live in a bubble where the ordinary people don’t get heard. Most people wanted a mandate and a public option.

    But that didn’t get through the bubble.
