Wed Jan 16, 2013, 04:18 PM

I am proud today to say I voted for this president.

Maybe I won't be tomorrow. The only constant is change, and my capacity for disappointment these days is only rivaled by my capacity for astonishment. If he pisses me off, or lets me down, or goes back on his word, or retreats when he should charge, I will surely make my feelings plain.

But in this moment, I think my vote was very well spent.

This was a good day. Cleanly, clearly, unequivocally.

This was a good day.

Thank you, Mr. President.

Has anyone noticed how the President seems to be putting VP Biden forward and having him lead on big issues? What a generous man who doesn't hog all the credit and spotlight. He's rewarding the Vice President for his loyalty, and possibly setting him up to run for president if Hillary doesn't want it.

7. Add my name to the list of those that feel the same

I said after he was elected the first time and I will say it again; If Obama fails, if these forces of darkness and hate manage to defeat him, that will signal the beginning of end of this nation.

I know it sounds drastic to say that but there is a crisis in this nation that has been building for many years as right wing extremism and hate have been growing like a cancer.

That cancer has focused on Obama and if it can succeed with its disregard for the truth, its appeals to fear and bigotry, its constant obstructionism, it's putting party over country and it's divisions and hate and sense of self pity, then I just dont see how we can continue as a nation..We will be two different peoples with drastically different values living in the same land area..a true house divided..

On the days where we are frustrated it always comes down to complexities to the big fucking mess he was handed, the vitriolic hatred of the Republican Party, or the need to compromise to establish a foundation today for even more change tomorrow.

Read that Democratic Congresspeople are coming with a proposal to reduce expenditures by introducing a pubic option.

That can only happen of Obamacare is there to provide a structure.

May not get it this time. May not get it the next time. But we just have to win once and then we got it.

We were seeing a lot of 4 steps forward and 2 steps back in the first administration.

Seems like we are seeing a lot less of the 2 steps back in the second.

I am pessimistic about the gun action.

But a lot more optomistic about immigration and reducing defense budgets.

I think he has checkmated the Republicans 7 ways to Tuesday on the Debt Ceiling.

I almost hope that they go completely fucking crazy and close down the government and let the markets spank them senseless.

We have a leader, a direction and a movement.

They have a civil war.

If Bush were doing drone strikes that invariable hit children (oh, I am sorry, that's just 'collateral damage') we would rightly be shouting our complaints from our rooftops.

Rmoney would never have gotten rid of the National Defense Authorization Act, and he would have continued the drone massacres that also kill children.

We get mad about Sandy Hook (rightly!), but how loud are we to stop Obama's drone strikes? Obama (the Military Industrial Complex) is doing Sandy Hooks every day in the Middle East. But "I'm glad he's our president"!

When will we, the United States, get a president who actually DESERVES a peace prize?! SMH!

54. Your question has a really simple answer...

We'll get a president who responds to "the people" when the people are the ones who get said president elected. As it is now, we have wealthy folks being bought a term in the oval office by other wealthy folks

It's like my corporate-owned Congresscritter. He doesn't give one smelly turd who I am or what I think. Of the myriad times he's exersized his GOP rubber stamp, he's NEVER consulted his constituents (that I'm aware of). Hell, he wouldn't even debate the legitimate challenger he had in this past election. Wouldn't even acknowledge the challengers existence. Henever even had a "town hall" meeting in the runup to his reelection! And that's because he's wholly owned by his corporate masters.

Give me a break. Another name for the public option is "Medicare". It's only been there for 50 stinkin' years. The structure has existed for a long time. Obama just failed to find a way to leverage it. (And continued to block their ability to negotiate lower drug prices.)

They have a civil war.

Now THAT'S the truth!

58. What you have failed to understand from the beginning, don't understand today


and probably won't understand for some time in the future is:

Expansion of federal power has always been accomplished on a narrow principle and expanded as people see the results and gain confidence in that role.

That is not simply an American process either. Single payer coverage in Canada started with a very narrow hospital coverage in a single province. It then went on to cover catastrophic illness. After a process of about 15 years they finally got single payer coverage. Mind you this came in a system that combines executive and legislative power in a single party through Parliament.

You can look at the same thing happening in all of our federal insurance programs as well. Social Security had a very narrow mission in the beginning. Look at any federal agency, CDC, FDA, USDA, they all started on narrow missions and expanded as people gained confidence in it. Flipping the switch and going national with a direct challenge to the entire health insurance industry would be difficult in a Parliment system but would is impossible under our divided divided power system where 40 Senators from the 20 smallest states accounting for less population than the 2 Senators from our largest state can bring everything to a halt. While it is true that the UK flipped the switch on a big conversion, they did so only after a prolonged war that brought together all classes under a shared sacrifice and with the defense sector already overtaking most of the medical resources of the private sector. In addition to that after getting it passed in our system you then have to get a Republican supreme court to pass that it is constitutional.

For 100 years progressives have wanted to establish legislation establish federal jurisdiction in controlling the health insurance industry and the health system. For 100 years we have failed. We now have that and it has passed the Supreme Court. It will never be taken away.

The real point of the Public Option is to reduce the Medical Loss Ratio to single payer levels. Before the AHCA medical loss ratios in many plans were 35%. Single payer systems typically cost about 7-9%. The ACHA capped it at 20% (25% for small plans). Billlions were saved on premiums and billions were refunded. Moreover, and this is the key point, the structure is in place to bring it down to 18% or to add a public option, maybe on a state by state basis first.

Your cynacism is hard earned and you wear it proudly so I don't expect things like establishing the principle of federal involvement in health care, the reduction of the MLR, the comparing of the context of countries like ours (Canada) or a restatement of the non Parliment radical division of political power to have any impact on your practiced bashing of President Obama. However I will leave you with this: Continuing to diminish the historic achievements of this President is exactly what the reactionary right wing wants you to do.l

59. Horse Hockey II

You keep moving goal posts:

For 100 years progressives have wanted to establish legislation establish federal jurisdiction in controlling the health insurance industry and the health system. For 100 years we have failed.

The goal was universal health CARE. We have still "failed". All we did was federalize the health insurance industry. This act no more made the "public option" a possibility than did Medicare. Without the ACA, we could still have arranged for a "public option" by allowing people and companies to "buy in" to the Medicare system. Of course, we STILL wouldn't have universal CARE.

Your cynacism is hard earned and you wear it proudly so I don't expect things like establishing the principle of federal involvement in health care, the reduction of the MLR, the comparing of the context of countries like ours (Canada) or a restatement of the non Parliment radical division of political power to have any impact on your practiced bashing of President Obama. However I will leave you with this: Continuing to diminish the historic achievements of this President is exactly what the reactionary right wing wants you to do.

Actually, overstating the accomplishment is exactly what the reactionary right wing wants YOU to do. It makes the ACA seem all that more of a "government takeover" than it really was. I realize you have a deep need to declare it an "historic" achievment, but Biden's declaration not withstanding, it was merely a federalization of the health insurance industry. It was the stated goal of the legislation NOT to change most of our insurance very much, if at all. It increased coverage for somewhere between 7 and 12% of the poplation, and did little to nothing to ensure that the newly covered could actually afford the underlying care. Costs of health CARE are still projected to increase annually (by the White House) to increase at around 7% per year for the foreseeable future. This will be unsustainable and THAT, more than anything in this piece of legislation, will bring around something vastly closer to single payer/universal care than anything in the ACA.

I've said long before the ACA that single payer is coming, and the GOP will most likely bring it to us. The multinationals will tire of paying for health care as a direct cost, when so many other economic competitors handle it as a shared cost. And when the GOP brings it to us, wait until you see what THEY mandate. They brought us Medicare Part D, and it came with a donut hole, and a restriction on federal negotiation that Obama kept.

Besides this touchy issue, he had the guts to take on health care. Today thanks to him, the cost of my only medication was over $30.00 lower. At the same time, I am very concerned about the "far right wing crazies" and where they are trying to take our country. Thank you for your Post, WRP.

45. Yes he isn't retreating from the challenge

that is good but his rhetoric in no way is matching his actions, which has been a long time complaint of mine. I studied the 23 points, there is absolutely nothing in any of them that will do anything to stop gun violence, in fact many are nothing more than reiterations or clarifications on things that are already being done, I don't know it just feels like he wrote a strongly worded letter but took no real action...

I know I have been flamed on here by those that think this issue is a loser for the broader Democratic coalition, but I can't help but think that if we mobilized and marched on D.C. to show that we actually have his back by demanding that Democrats and Republican lawmakers put a ban on assault weapons and limit the capacity those actions would be real not just words... I know he can't do it alone and I also know we can't let him down...

A very wise man once said “We are the ones we have been waiting for.” Lets act like it.

52. Me too

I stood in line , in the cold, for over an hour, to cast my vote for Obama, even though I live in the middle of a place that is the most liberal, progressive possible area in the U.S.

61. I don't see where the executive orders did much at all.

Corrrect me if I'm wrong.

The serious stuff has to be done by Congress: assault weapons ban, etc.

68. I'm proud of voting for this man too

 

Sure, he's made some mistakes. And he hasn't fulfilled all my expectations, such as getting universal healthcare implemented. But frankly, considering the extreme circumstances (e.g. the Tea Party), he's done a pretty good job as President. Hope he has more success in the next 4 years.
