Thank you, kpete and Dylan Matthews. "Barack Obama is officially one of the most consequential

presidents in American history"

And of course, the Affordable Care Act was hardly Obama's only accomplishment. He passed a stimulus bill that included major reforms to the nation's education system, big spending on clean energy, and significant expansions of anti-poverty programs. He shepherded through the Dodd-Frank Act, the first significant crackdown on Wall Street's power in a generation, which has been far more successful than commonly acknowledged.

He used executive action to enact bold regulations to curb green house gas emissions, and to protect nearly 6 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. He ended the ban on gay and lesbian service in the military, made it easier for women and minorities to fight wage discrimination, cut out wasteful private sector involvement in student loans, and hiked the top income tax rate.

He reopened relations with Cuba after a failed half-century estrangement and has tentatively reached a historic deal to keep Iran from getting a nuclear weapon — and, much more importantly, to avoid a war with Iran. He reprofessionalized the Department of Justice and refashioned the National Labor Relations Board and the Wage and Hour Division of the Labor Department into highly effective forces for workers' rights.


Yeah, "Affordable Health Care".. many more people aren't complaining about it. They're actually

getting cheaper health insurance and they aren't being turned away for pre-existing conditions.

thanks meeg

So glad President Obama called Jim Obergefell to Congratulate him! And Jim Obergefell thanked

the President too.

Not like some who don't want to give the President any credit at all!

"It was a demonstration of the power the president had found in the example of the people of Charleston—both the living and the dead. He wasn’t just telling. He was showing—the power he was trying to summon in this speech came from his own feeling of gratitude and obligation to serve as an example of grace."

So powerful!

Ya Deamer you!

This made me break down and cry, again.. mahalo kpete.

"We do not know whether the killer of Reverend Pinckney and eight others knew of all this history. But he surely sensed the meaning of his violent act,” he said. “It was an act that drew on a long history of bombs, and arson, and shots fired at churches. Not random, but as a means of control. A way to terrorize and oppress. An act that he imagined would incite fear, and recrimination. Violence and suspicion. An act that he assumed would deepen divisions that would trace back to our nation’s original sin.

“Oh,” he said, the faint traces of a chuckle bubbling deep in his chest. “But God works in mysterious ways.”


Thank you, Greg Howard.
