I'm a.ssuming you understand how the Federal government works, so I'm curious to know what you thought he was going to bring?
For some reason, people keep thinking the president needs congress or the house to get something done while he's in the white house. That's not true and really that's never been true.
It's cop out that is used repeatedly. Is it nice to have their support? Sure, but in reality, most of the time, it isn't necessary. Do I believe the house and congress was working against him? Of course they were.
Did I agree with Obamacare (ACA), not really. But now that it's here, I don't agree they should just get rid of it either. It's one of those decision where you don't just get rid of after the fact. At least, not right now until there is a better solution.
