7. Among other things. Here is what I would like to see him do

 

for starters, right now, to get things moving:

1. Give a speech about the ACA. Tell how many people in the US, in total, will lose their HC if it is "repealed". then tell about the results from NY state vis-a-vis cost savings for less affluent citizens. Finally lambaste the house for spending millions of tax dollars voting 38 times to "repeal" it.

2. Address the Dem congressional delegation, and have every last one of them go to their districts/states and tell their constituencies the exact number of their friends and neighbors who will be fucked if we go back to BushCare. According to ProSense, 32 million additional citizens will get access to HC because of this law. The president and the party need to put a face on every single one of those 32 million - right where they live.

There are certain things that we're out of luck on. The president is anti-labor, anti-public education, and anti-environment. But he might be able to salvage his presidency and the party if he will get to work on the issues where he's an actual Democrat and use his gift of speech-giving to his advantage.
